About this book

Language: French

Narwhal tooth – unicorn, sea urchin – magic stone, seahorse – happy pill, jellyfish – Gorgons ... For thousands of years, marine animals have resulted in many myths and legends. They also largely crept into our lives every day, contributing to our diet, inspiring art and various fabrics and clothing items, from pearl buttons to salmon leather boots. Throughout this book, the delights of shellfish, crustaceans, fish, birds and marine mammals are shown through the eyes of sailors, fishermen, artists, and chefs.

Summary in French:
Dent de narval – licorne, oursin – pierre magique, hippocampe – pilule du bonheur, méduses – Gorgones… Depuis des millénaires, les animaux marins ont donné lieu à de multiples mythes et légendes. Ils se sont aussi largement glissés dans notre vie de tous les jours, contribuant à notre alimentation, inspirant des objets d’art et des fabrications diverses, des boutons en nacre aux bottes en cuir de saumon. Au fil de cet ouvrage, partez donc à la rencontre des coquillages, des crustacés, des poissons, des oiseaux et des mammifères marins, à travers le regard des marins, des pêcheurs, des artistes ou des cuisiniers…
