“From the first Costeau film I saw and the fish I started keeping at the age of five, the first octopus and cuttlefish that squirted ink at me….I knew I couldn’t, wouldn’t stop exploring the sea” — Prince Hussain Aga Khan, from foreword to his book Diving Into Wildlife.
“The work of Hussain Aga Khan is visual poetry created in the sea that seduces the viewer to discover her mysteries and leads people to care. And when people care, change becomes possible” — Brian Skerry
As readers may be aware, we had offered for sale through this website, a very limited number of signed as well as a Special Edition of signed and numbered copies of Prince Hussain Aga Khan’s book Diving Into Wildlife containing a collection of extraordinary underwater photographs taken by the Prince in recent years in the Maldives, Tonga, Malaysia, Bahamas, Mexico and Egypt. The entire proceeds from the sales were submitted to Prince Hussain’s organization called Focused on Nature (FON), whose mission is to “assist in the conservation and protection of threatened and endangered species, as well as habitat conservation efforts when and where possible.”
FON fulfills its mission by providing grants to projects around the world which the FON team has identified and vetted as having immediate impacts in wildlife conservation, protection, preservation, and education. The money that is distributed by FON to deserving organizations is raised by either direct contributions to FON or from the sale of unique and fine objects including limited edition photographs, art, clothing articles and books such as “Diving Into Wildlife.”
The signed and the special edition have been sold out. We have a limited number of unsigned copies available, and once again the sales from these books will continue to support the work of FON. We encourage interested individuals who were not able to acquire a signed copy to consider purchasing the unsigned copy of this beautiful volume by Prince Hussain Aga Khan.
The book is being offered across North America at US$30.00 (plus packaging and airmail shipping cost of US$25.00). Each shipment will be trackable through the website of Canada Post. Request for orders for delivery outside of North America will be forwarded to FON for shipment from Europe, provided the book is still available.
