Dive into the richness of the world's oceans

The latest instalment in the bestselling Explorer Series, Ocean takes readers on a journey across continents and cultures to discover how artists and image-makers have found inspiration in the marine world throughout history. The diversity of the ocean are explored from both above and below the waves in this survey of a wide range of styles and media – from art, scientific illustrations, and sculptures to underwater photography, film stills, and textiles. In a visually stunning sequence, various works form different time periods, are thoughtfully paired to reveal more than what you see on the surface. The selection of works includes a diverse range of artists, including Eileen Agar, Carl Chun, Jacques Cousteau, David Doubilet, Ernst Haekel, Damien Hirst, Hokusai, Greg Lecoeur, and Georgia O'Keeffe. The book features large-scale images, accessible texts, and reference information, including a glossary, illustrated timeline, and biographies. Aimed at a wide audience, it is a comprehensive introduction to the subject, but also incudes fascinating examples that will be surprising even for specialists.
