Book of the Month - May 2018

6th June 2018

Congratulations to our May Book of the Month winner, Irene Mendez Cruz and her book "Kiss of the Oceans".


Our judges thought the book had some stunning photos that made a very powerful statement.

Here's what our winner had to say: "Kiss of the oceans is an underwater photography book that celebrates and compares the beautiful, diverse and fragile marine life of the Caribbean and Pacific coasts of Panama - two ecosystems only a few miles apart that make Panama a paradise for divers. However, this paradise like many others is threatened by marine plastic pollution, to which the last chapter of the book is solely focused on.

This was a project close to my heart and something I had thought of doing for many years during my multiple visits to Panama, where part of my family lives. I am really excited to finally be able to share it with the world through this platform and to Bob Books’ growing community of like-minded people. I am also very pleased to have chosen Bob Books because of the quality of the printing, which gives the professional finish that I was looking for my book."
