This lavish, limited-edition volume showcases more than two hundred sumptuous color photographs in full spreads and gatefolds-some measuring over five feet in length-and each book is numbered and includes a numbered print signed by the artist. From the rocky edges of Penobscot Bay, to the cottage charm of Nantucket Island, to the tropical grandeur of Palm Beach's majestic houses, award-winning photographer Jake Rajs captures the towns and fishing villages, the lighthouses and dunes, and the ocean in every season. Our Atlantic seaboard is home to some of the finest stretches of sand beaches and outer islands in the world. One of the most picturesque and varied parts of the continent, it is filled with natural diversity and includes a great range of historic towns and cities. Distant city views of the New York skyline and Miami's art deco beach hotels contrast vividly with such famed destinations as Beaufort and Newport, as well as such small towns as Mantoloking, Bar Harbor, Cape May and Vero Beach.
Jake Rajs's assignments have taken him to exotic locations around the world and have led to publication in "Life," "Esquire," "Omni," "Travel and Leisure," "GEO," and "Camera 35," among other magazines. He was voted "Reader's Digest's" "Best American Photographer," and his previous Rizzoli titles include "These United States," "America," "Manhattan: An Island in Focus," and "Cherry Blossoms." Walter Cronkite has covered virtually every news event during more than 60 years in the field.
