︎Joining the poetic diving journey, encounter hidden wonders under the cover of night.
Keywords  non-fiction ·  natural science · marine lives at night · poetic ·  fold-out

Books about marine beauty are always colorful, but this one is dark in black.

Jumping into the inky depth with a night diver, readers are invited to a poetic diving adventure, to discover the hidden wonders in the night sea: small fishes tucking away, parrotfish busily making sleeping nets, whales standing on tails, manta swooping close, ocean “stars” fluorescing, corals glowing…..  The night sea is never terrifying. It’s full of miracles waiting for us to see.

I’d like to call this book  a light-science book.  Instead of piling up explanatory text onto spreads, I arrange the science knowledge inside the fold-out structures. Therefore, at the first contact, readers can purely enjoy the lyrical texts and dreamlike scenes, and then open the flaps to find the scientific explanations.

This book is made during my MA, unpunlished. Seek for publication opportunity. Please email me if you’d like to reading-out video of the whole book.
