Editorial Reviews

Carl Little
Shettleworth and Bunting make a terrific team when it comes to telling us the whys and wherefores of these vintage photos.... The images in An Eye for the Coast are...as comprehensive a look at a Maine island at the turn of the century as has ever been produced.
Maine Times
Jamie Wyeth
It is rare, indeed, to discover a painter whose images in film are as distinct and strong as his images in paint. Eric Hudson has left us with a unique record of a great island and the sea that surrounds her.
Nathan Lipfert
Winner of the 1999 Captain W. J. Lewis Parker Award. "People at the Maine Maritime Museum, including myself, like everything about the book: good writing, top-notch scholarship, a genuine understanding of what [the authors] are trying to explain to readers, not to mention great production values and, of course, wonderful pictures.
