Is your life a beach? Then be sure to collect this limited-edition towel featuring an image from Martin Parr’s new book Life’s a Beach. Martin Parr has been photographing beaches for many decades, documenting all aspects of them, including close-ups of sunbathers, rambunctious swimmers caught mid-plunge, and the eternal sandy picnic underway. This towel is produced in a limited edition of 150 on the occasion of the exhibition and publication Life’s a Beach (Aperture, 2013).
You’ll be the talk of the shore as you sunbathe with this striking image of a sunbather, printed at thirty by sixty inches on 100% cotton fabric. It’s machine washable, so wrap up your little ones in style as they devour their popsicles.
