Visions of the Breaking Wave

£8.99

Product description

The simple beauty of the breaking wave has fascinated and inspired people - from poets, scientists and artists, to the humblest sailor or beachcomber - since the Flood. More recently, it's been the subject of some of world's finest surf and nature photographers, who've strived to capture the fleeting moments of the wave's progress from swell to sizzling foam.

Here is gathered a collection of their work, from coasts as far apart as West Australia and California, Indonesia and Tahiti, Africa and Hawaii, highlighted by some of history's most reflective and penetrating observations on the subject of waves and the sea.

A volume of work that will strike deep chords in the heart of surfers, sailors, fishers, coast-dwellers and anyone who appreciates the wave's unique marvel.

This book is in excellent condition throughout.
