Author: Nicola Pierce
Publisher: Nimbus Publishing Limited
A beautiful primer and giftbook on all things Titanic, featuring dozens of photos and vignettes, and suitable for all ages
Titanic. Its story is one of all those bound together on that ill-fated voyage in April 1912. On board were writers, artists, millionaires, sportsmen, priests, reverends, fashion designers, aristocrats, honeymooners, children, crew, and emigrants, all looking for a better life in North America. When the “unsinkable” ship hit an iceberg and sank off the coast of Atlantic Canada, 1,500 people died, while just 750 survived.
This book tells the stories of their lives, and shines a spotlight on Titanic‘s lost treasures, its celebrated send-off from Belfast, its animal passengers, the iconic music and movies inspired by the story, and the many, many tales of heroism and bravery that arose from this tragedy. Richly illustrated with archival photographs and newspaper clippings, as well as a comprehensive index, timeline, and suggested further reading, this all-ages book presents an accessible, fascinating history of the world’s most famous ship. Includes over 50 black and white photos.
