Come along on a journey through the oceans of the world in this beautiful book with illustrations made entirely from hand-pressed plants. Artist Helen Ahpornsiri transforms silky seaweeds, feathery algae, and bright coastal blooms into playful penguins, scuttling crabs, and schools of silvery sharks. Turn the page to explore each corner of the ocean, from hidden rock pools to the darkest depths. Marvel as plants transform into marvelous creatures, and discover the magic and beauty that lies beneath the waves.
Helen Ahpornsiri creates intricate collages using real flora and foliage. Each illustration is made up of hundreds of leaves and flowers, which are foraged or grown, then preserved with traditional flower-pressing methods. The plants are organized by species or color before being cut and delicately arranged to form birds, insects, and other creatures—all filled with tiny patterns and tangles of plant life. Helen Ahpornsiri lives in the U.K.
