Titanic: Touchstones of a Tragedy stands alone in the genre of books on the legendary ship thanks to its abundant use of artifacts and memorabilia not previously seen by those beguiled by the doomed White Star liner. With his use of these striking images and a wealth of facts to tell the Titanic's near mythic tale in a novel way, author Santini presents readers with a museum's worth of Titanic treasures -- all between the covers of a book.
