This is a site about sharks, surfers, obituaries, films, and books. 

from Thomas Pennant, British Zoology vol. 3, 1812. From the Smithsonian libraries, by way of Biodiversity Heritage Library.

Map of the Moluccas, in Richard Hakluyt’s Principal Voyages…vol. 11. 

One of the reasons I am interested in the obituary as an art form is that it provides exactly these unexpected connections; new routes for understanding the worlds we might live in.
