Overview

Hailed as “unsinkable,” the Titanic was the world’s biggest ship and the ultimate in seafaring luxury. Yet within five days of setting off on its maiden voyage, it sank to the bottom of the sea, taking the lives of more than 1,500 passengers. Nearly a century later, the Titanic remains the worst seafaring disaster in history.

As the blockbuster film proved, the Titanic’s tragic tale—rich in romance, intrigue, heroism, greed, wealth, and class—continues to grip the public’s imagination. While dozens of books have charted the ship’s all-too-short life, this remarkable volume stands apart from the rest. It’s the first to contain 30 fascinating facsimile items of Titanic memorabilia, including tickets, letters, telegrams, menus, original plans, and blueprints—as well as two stunning gatefolds and 200 photographs of the ship and the wreck, taken with underwater equipment.

Readers will enjoy a unique and compelling insight into life on board the luxury liner as she began her fateful voyage into the icy seas of the North Atlantic in April 1912.
