Thomas Blake--born in rural Wisconsin in 1902--was the most important and essential figure in the history of modern surfing, as a designer, a surfer, a ''water stuntman'' in films, and as a person and persona. In 1922 Blake bought a small travel camera and began what would become an ongoing photographic essay on his life and the surfing world which defined it. Tom Blake: Surfing 1922-1932 beautifully reproduces this photographic series, documenting the seminal world of California and Hawaii surfing in the 1920s and 1930s. The book is available in a hardcover edition as well as a limited edition packaged in a slipcase.
