Splendors of the Seas
The Photographs of Norbert Wu

This is a special Beaux Arts reprint edition available at a discounted price in limited quantities only.

Imagine swimming with a school of hammerhead sharks, riding the waves on the fin of a manta ray, frolicking with sea otters in the cold waters off of Monterey. . . For most of us the vast array of life and landscapes found under the sea is a world seldom, if ever, seen. Here, in this splendid collection of more than 250 color photographs by Norbert Wu, readers travel to remote underwater places for an up close look at the creatures that inhabit the oceans' diverse environments.

From the Arctic seas to the Great Barrier Reef, the Sea of Cortez to the Bahama Banks, Wu guides us through the world's oceans with a knowledge and love of the sea that is revealed in the drama of his photographs. Accompanying these photos is an informative text that includes Wu's field notes and recollections, providing technical information as well as personal insights.

Splendors of the Seas is a spectacle of color and beauty, each image an awesome testimony to the diversity and complexity of this virtually untouched wilderness beneath the waves.
