Why do we pick up pebbles on the beach? Is it their inherent beauty, their infinite variation, or simply their associations with a happy time and place?
In this book - part social history and part practical guide - writer and pebble collector Christopher Stocks unearths the sometimes surprising story of our love-affair with pebbles, and considers how the way we see them today has been influenced over the years by artists, authors and even archaeologists.
