If your father is the sporting or seafaring sort of man, surprise him with a print or a very classy maritime map. We also have fascinating (& fishynatural history prints, & marvelously manly pictorial & bird's-eye-views, like the one pictured above.

A Summer Nature Lesson

Emerge from Summer like a Butterfly
Summer is the perfect time to fill one's head with fascinating facts about the natural world. What exciting topics will you be reading about this summer? Perhaps you will study mammals, such as whales, bats, or cats?  Will you spend your summer bird-watching with your guide in hand?  Maybe you or your little ones are fascinated by insects of all sorts and you plan to build bug hotels. Are you looking forward to long days by the water, fishing or looking for the perfect sea shells?  Or is gardening and reveling in gorgeous flowers more your speed? Whatever you spend your time doing, we hope you will enjoy all of the fruits of the lovely summer season!
