Sea Fever is a beautifully produced book about the changing face of Britain’s coastline. A high-quality duotone reproduction of Stuart Franklin’s stunning black and white photographs take the reader from the impact of storms in the Outer Hebrides to the aftermath of the flash flood in Boscastle, Cornwall. As well as this, the book also covers some of the major maritime events of the year, including the Festival of the Sea, the re-enactment of the Battle of Trafalgar, Cowes Week and the Solent Fleet Review.

Addressing many of the concerns and pressures that are changing our shoreline, Sea Fever is an inspiring book that explores environmental and social issues such as shipbuilding, fisheries and the protection of the coast. It is a significant cultural contribution to SeaBritain 2005 – a celebration of landscape and livelihoods.

Sea Fever includes some of Franklin’s photographs that appear in The Coast Exposed exhibition at the National Maritime Museum, London, and at The Lowry, Salford Quays, Manchester, U.K.
