Exploring the Deep Frontier

While at a particularly good estate sale this weekend I stumbled upon the book "Exploring the Deep Frontier: The Adventure of Man in the Sea" published by the National Geographic Society. I've been gathering various aquatic materials for a forthcoming art installation, and this book has provided a bit more inspiration. This is a drawing of John Holland, an Irish schoolteacher-turned-inventor who designed the first U.S. submarines around the turn of the 20th century.

Oh yeah and I threw in some fish (Lavender Eyed Redlings). I think this would probably make for a good show flier.
