Item description for The Sea (MiniCube) by Valeria Manferto...
The Atlantic, the Red Sea, the Caribbean, the South Pacific-here are all the oceans in all colors and aspects: clear, tropical waters; turbulent open seas; immense plains of water seen from space; magical icy polar oceans; and delicate and frothy photographs from inside powerful waves. The Sea's camera eye emerges from underwater-from the multicolored coral reefs and underwater wrecks and washes on to sandy beaches, coral reefs, cliffs, and volcanic islands to observe the life of coastal villages, ports, and on ships at sea. Another chapter deals with sea creatures: predators and prey, the brightly hued, the powerful, and the delicate life of our oceans.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Sea (MiniCube)?
Read the fine print... Jul 7, 2008
Be aware! This product is approx. 1.5 inches X 1.5 inches. It is impossible for most humans to read. When they say minicube, they really mean microscopic-cube...
Now you see the Sea. Oct 14, 2007
This is a companion to "The Earth" by Alberto Betrolazzi which I just wrote a Review for on October 12,2ooy. It is by the same people,and similar in size and other qualities. Again with 735 pages and mostly photographs. I personally enjoyed this book more for a couple of reasons.First ,there is much more involvement with people,animals fish,and overall photographs that are more inspired and interesting than just beautiful photographs. Also,in "The Earth",the photographs are nearly all taken from aircraft;but in this book the photographs are from Space,from the Air,at Sea Level,From Boats,up close with animals,( Pages 207-239 Seas of Ice are supurb ,interesting and awe-inspiring).Then there are those fantastic photographs taken Underwater!! of fish and a variety of creatures.The photographs of Man's dwellings beside the sea and his enjoyment of Surfing and Sailing on the Sea. Shipwreck and other residue of History on the Seabed,the magnificence of volcanic interaction with the sea,all make this much more interesting to the reader ,or I should say,the viewer. I have reviewed several books of this type and this is one of the best.
Seeing the sea as poetry Jun 28, 2007
What is there about 'looking' at certain kinds of scenes and sights, and phenomena which gives us such pleasure? Why do we love to see? I have read other books in this series on natural phenomena which gave great delight. But the sea somehow has a power to move our imagination, to suggestively reshape our feeling, to give us new light and new dreams? The photos here are so richly - colored, and they enable us to see the sea in ways which we with our ordinary terms of access would not .From undersea and from distances above , the photographs give us pictures which seem to be kind of poetry for the eyes.
