A stunning lift-the-flap and laser-cut book that reveals the secrets of the sea, by the creator of the acclaimed Anatomy. 

Take a deep breath and dive into this gorgeous, large-format book, which uses clever cutouts and laser-cut illustrations to explore the ocean from shoreline and shallows to inkiest depths. A meticulously crafted, die-cut coral theatre presents a wonderful stage on which a teeming underwater world plays. As well as looking at the movements of waves and water, Hélène Druvert brings to life the ocean’s inhabitants: lift the flaps to discover shellfish and crabs hiding under rocks, or zoom in on a giant squid. This fascinating journey ends with a reminder of how essential it is to preserve the oceans.
