Synopsis: Another Day at Sea is the first title in the Writers in Residence series — a collectible set of books that brings together some of the greatest writers and photographers on the planet to reveal the normally faceless organizations that shape the modern world. The arresting, full-color photography, depicting a subculture that is surprising, hilarious, beautiful and insane, is by Chris Steele-Perkins, an award-winning Magnum photographer. Every book in the set designed by Jeremy Leslie of magCulture. Meeting the Captain, the F-18 pilots and the dentists, experiencing everything from a man-overboard alert to the Steel Beach Party, Dyer guides us through the most AIE (acronym intensive environment) imaginable. Underlying Dyer?s efforts to overcome the disadvantages of being the oldest, tallest (actually, second tallest), and most self-conscious person on the boat is an intense fascination with the military world. In recording daily life on board the ship, Dyer illuminates a society where discipline and conformity, dedication and optimism, become a form of self-expression. Another Great Day at Sea is a dazzling social experiment, bringing readers behind the scenes of the world?s largest aircraft carrier in a way that has never been seen before.
