This unique portrait of the rarely glimpsed world beneath Britain’s lakes, river and seas is brought to life by renowned wildlife artist David Miller.  In order to capture such stunning images David draws not only on his first-hand experiences of diving some of Britain’s most beautiful waters, from chilly, rock-strew salmon- haunted rivers of Scotland to the spectacular coastal waters of North Pembrokeshire, with its wealth of bird and sea-life, but also on a deep-rooted reverence for and understanding of his subject.

REVIEWS '....it is with great pleasure that I opened the cover of Beneath the Surface. Inside this large -format volume are some of the most appealing paintings and line art it has ever been my privilege to review, and the quality of the reproduction is absolutely beyond reproach - be prepared for a serious treat. Langford Press have enjoyed considerable success with their 'Wildlife Art Series' and David Miller was an obvious choice...as a fisherman it is impossible not to appreciate this book. David is a keen angler and learnt his fish portraiture the hard way, by diving to view his subject in their natural habitat - it sounds kind of extreme, but when you compare David's art to virtually anybody else's, it is impossible not to be conscious of the difference, not least because most artists paint fish as they appear in the hand, rather than as they do underwater. David's fish look as if they belong there...The plates are generous and accompanied by explanatory text and photographs; with sections on coarse, game and sea fish I don't see how anyone could turn this down.' Andrew Herd Waterlog No. 64 Summer 2008
...A couple of years ago I bid successfully at a charity for an artwork commission from David Miller, who specializes in painting fish, often drawn from studies and photographs he has taken while diving in rivers. He gave me regular updates on his book, Beneath the Surface, as we chatted on the progress of the painting. Like many artists, Miller likes to get the details right and that's clear enough in this stunning collection of paintings, sketches and photographs of fish, faithfully depicted in their habitat......The book is arranged in three sections, covering coarse, game and sea fish. .....Much as I love all of his work, it is the paintings of pike that stand out for me and I am not surprised to read him confessing that “left to indulge myself, I could probably paint pike for ever.” Richard Donkin, Financial Times
Angler's Mail can unveil Beneath the Surface---156 pages of some of the most stunning wildlife art ever to have graced a book. The brainchild of mad keen angler, David Miller, this book combines David's love of our sport with his immense abilities as an artist......."If stunning artwork accompanied by absorbing stories and explanations is what you are looking for in a book this is right up your street." Ben Weir, Anger's Mail
Even at the best of times, the supply of books on angling could never have been described as a flood and nowadays there aren’t many publishers left who will consider anything that mentions the word fish, so it was with great pleasure that I opened the cover of Beneath the Surface. Inside this large format volume are some of the most appealing paintings and line art it has ever been my privilege to review and the quality of the reproduction is absolutely beyond reproach – be prepared for a serious treat.

David’s fish look as if they belong there, even when the subject is a perch in a sunken aeroplane. The plates are generous and accompanied by explanatory text and photographs; with sections on coarse, game and sea fish I don’t see how anyone could turn this down. FishingBookReviewOnline
