From Colum­bus’s jour­ney in 1492 to sev­en­teen­th­cen­tury slave ships, the in­fa­mous Ti­tanic, and present-day ocean-dwelling com­mu­ni­ties, the ter­ri­ble majesty of the sea is cel­e­brated through a col­lec­tion of po­ems penned by a bevy of award­win­ning au­thors and po­ets, each with a unique voice and story. Strik­ing mixed-me­dia il­lus­tra­tions fea­ture sailors, ex­plor­ers, and refugees amid the starry skies and dark waves, con­vey­ing all the fluid strength and time­less­ness of the ocean.
