The third in a series of visually exciting children’s publications focusing exclusively on works produced by artists from Greece. This publication is focused on works that depict or think about the seas, thinking of those who live and work on the sea, sea ecologies, but also as a repository of our dreams of travel, via historical and contemporary works of art. The publication includes playful and thought provoking texts by author and educationalist Alkistis Halikia, which raise questions on ways of thinking of the sea around us.
