Item description for The Sea: Supercube (Supercubes) by Various...
Here are all 712 images that collectors, beach lovers, and sailors—especially sailors!—loved in the 6-inch square Cubebook edition of The Sea. This appealing larger format is much more than a bigger canvas —it is a new way to view its unsurpassed image quality. Taken both from above the sea and below, the pictures in this format convey the unparalleled magnificence of the oceans and seas of the world. The crashing gray waves of the Atlantic Ocean, the calm turquoise waters of the Caribbean, and the vast expanse of the South Pacific are all showcased in glorious full color. Through these vibrant images, readers are transported to the pristine beaches of the Virgin Islands and picturesque fishing villages along the Mediterranean coastline; they catch a wave in Maui and join the night fisherman in Kerala, India. With its stunning full-page spreads, this substantial format is ideal for showcasing turbulent storm-tossed waves and craggy coastlines, frigid arctic seas and peaceful tropical reefs teeming with colorful fish. The delicate balance of the marine ecosystem is demonstrated in pictures depicting the predator-prey relationship and our own dependence on the sea for sustenance. The sea as a source of endless diversion is depicted as well in dramatic pictures of surfers and yacht races. From superb shots of underwater canyons to aerial views of remote volcanic islands, deep-sea predators patrolling the ocean floor and airborne dolphins skimming the water's surface, this volume takes us on an unforgettable aquatic adventure that will thrill readers of all ages.
