About The Book of Pebbles

Why do we pick up pebbles on the beach? What is it we see in them, and why do we take them home to display on our shelves? Is it their inherent beauty, their infinite variation, or simply their associations with a happy time and place?

In The Book of Pebbles – part social history and part practical guide – writer and pebble collector Christopher Stocks unearths the sometimes surprising story of our love-affair with pebbles, and considers how the way we see them today has been influenced over the years by artists, authors and even archaeologists.

About Angie Lewin

Born in Cheshire, Angie Lewin studied Fine Art at Central School of Art & Design followed by a postgraduate year at Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts. After working as an illustrator she went on to study horticulture and garden design. A move to Norfolk prompted a return to exhibiting paintings and prints. She now divides her time between Edinburgh and Speyside in northeast Scotland.

About Christopher Stocks

Christopher Stocks writes about a diverse range of subjects, including architecture, design, gardens and perfume. He divides his time between London and a house overlooking Chesil Beach, and is also a keen runner and trainee bell ringer. His first book, Forgotten Fruits, was a social history of British fruit and vegetables that became an unlikely success, with Monty Don choosing it as his favourite book of the year.


The Ede Room is fully accessible. It is located on the second floor of Kettle’s Yard and can be reached by stairs or lift. There are accessible toilets located on the ground and first floors.
