"From Lisa Congdon, bestselling author of Whatever You Are, Be a Good One , this lovely new book invites readers to dip into the many joys of swimming. Congdon brings her personal passion as a lifelong swimmer to this beautiful and thoughtful celebration of getting in the water. Hand-lettered inspirational quotes, watercolor portraits paired with real people's personal stories, illustrated collections of vintage objects-colorful swim caps, bathing suits through the ages, traditional pool signs-and much more evoke the beauty and inspiration of the subject. An emphasis on swimming as a way of life-taking the leap, going with the flow-makes this delightful volume one that will speak to serious swimmers, vacation paddlers, and anyone pondering their next high dive."--
