Why We Love This

The Scallop: Studies of a shell and its influences on humankind by Ian Cox. Liverpool: 'Shell ' Transport and Trading Co, 1957. 135 pages. Hardcover. Some of the lesser-known aspects of the scallop shell, of its uses in ancient times, as a symbol in heraldry, in art and architecture, and of its association from early time with pilgrimages to Spain. With lovely color illustrations on nearly every page.
