Sailors' Wisdom: Day by Day
After the international success of AbramsÂ The Sea and The Sea Day by Day, Philip Plisson presents his best photographs in SailorsÂ Wisdom: Day by Day.A master of marine photography and an Official Painter of the French Navy, Plisson presents the sea in all of its diverse moods, states, and colors. Raging and lawless or subsiding complacently, the sea continuously fascinates and bewitches in its many roles, creating and destroying, providing and consuming, charming and provoking. Throughout the year, waves, swells, lighthouses, sails, and boats in oceanic lights will fill the days with dream and escape. With its smaller format and a bounty of extraordinary photographs accompanied by proverbs from sailors, this book is a perfect gift for all seafarers and lovers of the sea.
