Overview

"It is no coincidence that so many of the world’s creation myths involve water. Out of this apparent void, all else is born. Not surprising, then, that the sea holds such a primeval fascination." —from the introduction to The Sea

The sea is the first wonder of the world. Source of all life, key to our survival, all around us and yet still remote, it is a beautiful, strange, wild, and peaceful part of planet Earth. This spectacular photographic book is a unique celebration of our vast oceans and our innate human attraction to the water as viewed through the lens of the world’s best marine photographers.

In it you’ll find stunning, vivid images coupled with evocative text showing unforgettable scenes that tell just part of the story of the sea, capturing moments such as: the forceful impact of waves crashing onto the shore, the complete solitude of the vast midocean, the massive glaciers of the Antarctic, the weird and wonderful wildlife found deep beneath the surface, and, of course, the heavenly island paradises and tranquil waters that whet our appetite and power our imagination.
