Stories In Sand: The Arabian Nights
Langlois' book is both a sand art book and a storybook on the Arabian Nights. Ten years ago, 70 of the best sand sculptors in the world created the largest sand sculpture park ever made. Located in Kuwait, it was an immersive experience that illustrated the Arabian Nights through a sculpture park built entirely from sand. It was the size of six football fields with a sand palace 52 feet high that could be walked through. Damon Langlois, the creator of Liberty Crumbling and winner of Texas SandFest in 2019, was the creative director. He has created this 276-page book that pairs his photos of these sculptures with stories to create this unique sand sculpture exhibit in book form. It also tells the story of their adventure in creating such an artistic feat! It is a must for any fan of sand sculpting. Support the Kickstarter for the book here.
