Fish Eaters is a beautifully illustrated book of poems inspired by the seas and oceans of the world. The poems are all authored by Caroline Carver who has been 'poet in residence' at Plymouth University's Marine Institute. The book is the result of a year's work and is available to purchase through the University of Plymouth Press.


The design naturally uses blue tones and mixes both illustrative and photgraphic elements. In addition a bespoke typeface called 'Emilida' with subtle calligraphic elements was chosen, beautifically reflecting and enriching the qualities of the poetry itself.

It really is fantastic. Thank you all. Brilliant work.
