The magical world of the oceans is one of the last great largely unexplored places on earth. Teeming with diverse forms of life - some of its wonders more familiar to us than others and all peculiar in their own way - Fish Face takes us closer than one would imagine possible. Featuring full-page, close-up portraits of the faces of fish, this book takes us from the beautiful to the ugly, and from the spiky to the rotund, in a majestic exploration of the vast variety of underwater species - all without fail both amusing and astounding.

This book celebrates the work of David Doubilet, widely acclaimed as the world's leading underwater photographer, who has been photographing fish for over 25 years: Fish Face shows us the most colourful, humorous and bizarre fish he has ever encountered.

Of particular interest to naturalists and photographers alike, this extraordinary collection of photographs will further appeal to anyone who has ever reflected on the otherworldly fish that inhabit the mysterious world of the oceans, as well as any individual with an eye for an out-of-the-ordinary aesthetic.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This strangest of portrait galleries is an essential stocking filler for any icothyopile ... Any surrealist would have been proud to invent the spiny porcupine fish, with skin like eddying smoke, a profusion of barbs, orange eye and leery grinning mouth. You couldn't make it up.' (The Independent)
