I hadn’t even heard of places like Vanatu and Raja Amput before we began this book project, but I was charmed and intrigued by the underwater images of Laura, and I wanted to know and see more.

Traveling to some of the most remote and unique locations, Laura has captured the stunning beauty both above and below the sea. Her photography is a visual treat, and this book is a window to amazing places and people.

As book designers, the bright and multi-colored images were a delightful challenge. We had to create the right balance of tone, size and texture or the pages would feel heavy or almost cluttered. As always, we want the book’s design to present the content with an aesthetic value that not just matches but enhances the content.

Take a look inside this just released book, In the Wake of Magellan. We hope you'll like the design - I know you'll love the pictures.
