The book “The Maritime Basque Country seen through the whaleship San Juan" has been publicly released
It has been a joint effort between the Basque publisher Elkar and Albaola.
The goal of this book is to spread the word about the maritime identity of Euskal Herria. In this book we explain the presence and the influence that Basque maritime expertise and technology have had, both in the evolution of our society and in the course of world history, providing the necessary keys to understand it.
The story told in this book reaches to the times of the San Juan whaling ship, and also comes up to the construction of her replica. An attractive layout with beautiful illustrations and an accesible text makes the book engaging and easy to read.
The book has been published in two versions, Basque and Spanish, and it’s on sale at Albaola the Basque Maritime Factory and at regular bookstores; versions in French and English will also be available soon.
