Jonathan White
Like many who have spent a life traveling the ocean, Jonathan White felt betrayed by a force he thought he understood when his ship ran aground on a spring tide in Alaska. The incident gave way to a ten-year research project—aptly titled Tides—in which the sailor, surfer, and San Juan Islands conservationist followed the movements of the ocean at their most instructive and formidable. Elliott Bay Book Company, Free

Gettin' Ghibli With It
The Studio Ghibli catalogue, especially in thanks to the genius of Hayao Miyazaki, comes across more as lucid dreaming than children's entertainment—cementing forever the status of animation as high art. As a nod to Miyazaki, a group of artists contribute works that engage the legacy of his unrelenting imagination. True Love Art Gallery, Free
