Welcome to the Beautiful Book Boutique. AbeBooks has many millions of books, many of which are rare books, collectable books, antiquarian books or unique books. They range in subject from collectable picture books and antique sports books to out-of-print magazine archives and more. And every day, thousands of books sell and thousands more are added from booksellers all over the world.
The sea inspires passion. To a person with sailing in their blood, few subjects ignite stronger excitement than salt air, a good wind, and the open ocean. Whether for fishing, a destination or the simple pleasure of sailing, it's a hobby that can become an obsession or way of life easily, for those who can afford it. And all kinds of marine craft have inspired art and design, as well, from the meticulous construction of ships in bottles to models to craftspeople building their own boats, and book design is no exception. Barges and freighters, sailboats and canoes, oceanliners and more - many a seafaring vessel has graced and beautified the cover of a book.
Enjoy this selection of nautical, marine-vessel themed books. All are beautiful, many are affordable.
