Swimming Studies by Leanne Shapton

Another swimming book. I have read this one and I loved it. It is part diary, part memoir, part notebook. Shapton includes her own paintings and photos of some of her collection of vintage swimming costumes. A Canadian she trained for the Olympic trials but gave up competetive swimming soon afterwards and became an author and an artist. Her stroke when she was competing was breaststroke.
