The Deep

The University of Chicago Press just launched a Flash Website, complete with gallery, for The Deep: The Extraordinary Creatures of the Abyss by Claire Nouvian. Fantastic site with some of the same pictures as in the book.

  1. Very nice promo. I put Nouvian’s book on my Wish List (as I’m not working right now and can’t justify buying more books at the moment), but it looks great. Reminds me, one thing I’m jealous of James Cameron is that documentary he did. I’d like a submersible for my birthday…


  2. Just put my order in on amazon! Amazing.

    This will go nicely next to Eric Hoyt’s Deep Sea Creatures and Peter Batson’s Deep new Zealand on my bookshelf.

  3. I am only an elementary teacher who teaches a gambit of subjects, but these pictures are breath-taking! Thank you for a sneek peak.
