The publisher is rightly renowned for publishing large format art works of the highest quality. The author is an established international photographer displaying the highest levels of his art – Most Highly Recommended. SKIRA have once more added a further photographic masterpiece to their Photography Series. Once again they have provided text in Italian and English, using the best gloss paper stock to produce stunning images in full colour and fine detail. The book follows the publisher proven format, starting with a number of text sections in the two languages, introducing the subjects and the photographer. There then follows the main body of the book with one large stunning photograph per page. The work concludes with an excellent summary of the images in thumbnail, with dual language captions and a bibliography. It is difficult to do full justice to the work in words. Each picture conveys a mass of information and emotion. The subjects have been shot in some of the wildest and most remote shores of continents and islands around the world. The work is inspirational and will appeal to photographers, boating enthusiasts and those interested in the wilder margins of the world. It is a book of enormous appeal that should not be missed and it is priced at a level that makes it available to the widest readership. There will be those who purchase this book as a 'coffee table' book - and why not? It has all the impressive visual appeal with a high colourful impact. Mostly, the reviewer suspects, the main readership will be photographers looking for inspiration and guidance to develop their skills, and to boat enthusiasts who will relish the variety of boat and ship types that have been wrecked to slowly decay far from the likelihood of visitors. However, there is much to satisfy other readers. Some images are as much of terrain, seascape and wildlife as of wreck. All backgrounds display the variety of locations in which the wrecks now rest.
