"Violet Moon, True Tulip, and Peruvian Hat are a few of my favorite names from a gorgeous new guide to identifying shells—600 shells, to be exact, a number that constitutes less than 1 percent of the known species of seashells. (Some scientists estimate that more than 1,000,000 shells have yet to be discovered.) The Book of Shells by M.G. Harasewych, curator of marine mollusks at the Smithsonian Institution, and researcher Fabio Moretzsohn is a beautifully designed reference work with exquisite photographs of shells that range in size from a grain of sand to a beach ball."
