The 12th issue of quarterly food journal Lucky Peach, titled “The Seashore,” features stories “all about food from littoral realms—the spaces where land meets sea.” 

Here are some fascinating experiences you can expect to read about:

  • Diving for abalone and seaweed off the California coast
  • A stroll along a beach town with Anthony Bourdain
  • Exploring a shrimp farm in Indonesia
  • Lessons in eating clams, hagfish, and sea squirts

Also included in the issue is a detachable sixteen-page “beach reads” comic book featuring work from artists Jason Jägel, Tony Millionaire, and more.

You can purchase the new issue on August 19 at local newsstands. Hooray!
