In this enchanting volume, beloved artist Lisa Congdon invites readers to take a delightful dip into the joy of swimming. Every page is filled with beautiful and thoughtful celebrations of getting in the water, and what makes it so cherished, meditative, and energising: from watercolour portraits paired with personal stories of how swimming has affected real people's lives, to illustrated inspirational quotes, to collections of vintage ephemera and objects--colourful swim caps, bathing suits through the ages, traditional pool signs, and more--all interspersed with the inviting, clear blue waters of oceans, lakes, and swimming pools. A preface from record-breaking long-distance swimmer and bestselling author Lynne Cox offers an appreciation of Congdon's artwork from a swimmer's point of view.With an emphasis on swimming as a way of life--diving in, going with the flow--this beautiful volume will speak to serious swimmers, vacation paddlers, and anyone pondering the high dive.
