Waves are an endless source of fascination for everyone, from scientists to surfers. Who could watch for hours , days, or years, and not be mesmerized by the cycle of ebb and flow, the process of renewal?
The Book of Waves - now in its third edition - celebrates the ocean wave phenomenon through a spectacular gallery of photographs by such renowned ocean photographers as Woody Woodworth, Denjiro Sato, and Don King, as well as work from the archives of NASA. The photographs are illuminated by text that includes a description of the life cycle of waves illustrated with three-dimensional cutaway drawings depicting the interaction of land and ocean; anecdotes from sailors, surfers, skin divers and others; excerpts from the literature concerning waves; and details of the photography found in the gallery section.
The Book of Waves will be, for years to come, the definitive artistic and factual treatment of a natural phenomenon that fascinates us all.
