Format: Hardcover
This a beautiful book and a perfect gift for all ages!
It is a collaboration of poet and artist which takes the reader on a page by page journey....land and sea...
The care that went into its production is evident by its quality.
BUY IT! You will treasure this book ....or a loved one will remember you for presenting them with a truly unique and thoughtful gift. I love the ocean and I love this book. (Especially the Gatsby poem and painting as I am a big Fitzgerald fan)...every poem and picture evokes memories in us all...A joy!

When I picked up Land & Sea for the first time, I was impressed by the beautiful artwork, the luscious poetry and the sound of the paper as I slowly flipped through the pages. But what I didn't expect was the wonderful feeling of relaxation as I savored each poem and painting. What a wonderful gift to myself. And I'm expecting Land & Sea to be a wonderful gifts for my family and friends to grace their coffee tables and bookshelves. Thank you Cristina and Irene for this precious book.

This book is a must for anyone who appreciates the beauty of New England. Not only is the artwork lovely, Ms. Norcross transports the reader right into the painting, making it a real world through her eyes. She brings the art to life!

Pleasure to meet Christina and Irene at the book signing in NYC the other day. I felt I was in each story by the paintings put together with the words. Beautifully written and wonderful artwork! Thank you for spreading the beauty of God in so many simple treasures!
