Another in the series of books which Finlay has entitled with the word Stripe in the title.

The text over the middle two pages takes the phrase "THE SEA MOVES LIKE A DANCER" and a wave pattern. The text moves around in the same way a boat might on the waves. This example has some sunning on the front cover and is also missing the original slide binding. Murray 1.12
