Sea; by Mark Laita; Abrams; $50; (ISBN: 978-1-4197-0087-3)
Sea offers a collection of 85 stunning images of strange and beautiful aquatic creatures. Created by award-winning photographer Mark Laita, each shot was captured in front of a stark black background that allows the vibrant colors and shapes of the animals to hold the viewer’s undivided attention. Rainbow-colored tropical fish, graceful jellyfish, lithe eels, mysterious sharks, and comical sea turtles grace each page, making this a must-have addition to your personal library.

Historia, Memoria y Silencios; by Lorena Guillén Vaschetti; Schilt Publishing; $45; (ISBN: 978-9-0533-0761-8)
This book is Argentinian artist Lorena Guillén Vaschetti’s highly personal monograph of her family. An artistic interpretation of a box of old family snapshots that her mother had decided to throw away, the images revealed a past Vaschetti knew little or nothing about. In English, the title of the book is History, Memory and Silences, a more than fitting description for this haunting and lovingly created collection of 43 full-color images.
