Man and Sea
by Yann Arthus-Bertrand
and Brian Skerry
Man and Sea will probably become one of the main reference books on the largest living organism on earth, the oceans, and the lives that depend on them. The book’s 12 chapters covers both the good life-giving aspects of the oceans, as well as the bad (sad) treatment it receives, mostly from man’s indifference, greed and pure ignorance of what they are causing or allowing to happen. The images in this book are as amazing as any you will ever see on the subject. Many are full two page spreads, which makes them even more enjoyable to look at. I for one would love to be able to swim past a huge whale shark, but not too interested in being in the middle of a school of sword fish. The images will amaze you that they were even able to have been taken at all. A well-written and beautifully printed book and a perfect match for the Beautiful Whale book.
