Dr Grorges Dussart and Dr David Ponsonby
The ocean covers around seven-tenths of the earth’s surface, plunging at its depths to more than 30,000 feet. For centuries, naturalists have catalogued thousands of types of both animals and plants in the seas of the world, and created intricate illustrations of the sheer diversity of the ocean. The Anatomy of the Sea reproduces more than 600 of these artworks, offering a full panorama of the underworld that sea-dwellers inhabit, from the largest whale to the tiniest shrimp. A collection of drawings, engravings and woodcuts arranged by family and genus offers a tour of the deep that is full of surprises.
