From the #1 San Francisco Chronicle best-selling author Obi Kaufmann comes a reverential ode to the Golden State’s world-famous coastline:

The Coasts of California: A California Field Atlas

The Coasts of California explores the rhythms of the tides, the lives of sea creatures, the shifting of rocks and sand, and the special habitats found where the land meets the ocean. From the artist-adventurer behind The Forests of California and The California Field Atlas, this shoreline odyssey traces the California Coastal Trail in exquisite watercolors and pure poetic reverie, fusing science and art throughout. A treasure for any coast-lover, this book is a time capsule of enduring and endangered places, a geographic epic bursting with color.

Featuring over 400 of the author’s signature watercolors and maps, Kaufmann invites readers on an odyssey from the rocky coast of Crescent City to the mosaic of the Channel Islands. In this ecological epic, Kaufmann explores where land meets ocean—where most of the human population of the state lives and where its natural world is most threatened—painting a vision for a more sustainable future along the way.

Encased in an eco-friendly slipcase embossed with the artist’s designs, this flexibound atlas offers readers a fathoms-deep dive into the natural history of the Pacific and its environs. Each edition preordered through Heyday includes a signed print from the author.

About Obi Kaufmann

Growing up in the East Bay as the son of an astrophysicist and a psychologist, Obi Kaufmann spent most of high school practicing calculus and breaking away on weekends to scramble around Mount Diablo and map its creeks, oak forests, and sage mazes. Into adulthood, he would regularly journey into the mountains, spending more summer nights without a roof than with one. This artist-adventurer has dedicated his life to studying California’s natural world and sharing his passion for its generous landscapes through the stroke of paintbrush and pen. When he is not backpacking, you can find the painter-poet at home in the East Bay, posting trail paintings at his handle @coyotethunder on Instagram. His website is coyoteandthunder.com.
