The Death Coast

















I'm loving the amazing featured seller on etsy this week, the work of Jolby warms my heart, hands have wrapped love into each piece by charming characters, a hint of humor and beautiful type.

Most of all I'm drawn to the dark memorial of the vast sea featured in the Death Coast print,
the Costa de Morte or the Death Coast is known for its doom of shipwrecks along it's rocky shore while being trapped in by the Atlantic Ocean. It reminds me of my fear of drowning and the theme of the unknown and the abyss; often unto which sailors and explorers felt as they looked into the darkened seas searching for the hope of light coming onto the horizon.
