Boys and girls will be enthralled by this dramatic pictorial history of the great ocean liner R.M.S. Titanic, and its fateful sinking in the North Atlantic. Approximately 125 photos and illustrations in color and black and white--including 12 astonishing 3D-rendered graphics--tell the Titanic's story, from its 1911 launching at the Belfast shipyard to its tragic destruction on April 15, 1912 during its maiden Atlantic crossing. Young readers will see faithful reproductions of both exterior and interior ship's details, from the Boiler Room and Engine Room far below decks to the luxury passengers' cabins and the ship's grand ballroom. Among the 3D-rendered artworks are two remarkable double-gatefold illustrations--
- The Titanic under steam
- A cutaway diagram of the ship
Other 3D artworks include--
- The Grand Staircase in First Class
- A First Class Cabin "Parlor Suite"
- The Bridge and Wheelhouse
- The First Class Dining Room
- Second Class Promenade Deck
- The Grand Staircase flooding as the ship sinks . . . and more
The end product of meticulous research, this book's 3D-rendered artwork virtually draws readers aboard the ship, employing painstakingly realistic facsimiles of details both large and small. Enclosed with this unusual book is a CD-ROM that walks viewers through the ship's interior from stem to stern, showing hundreds of details. Viewers can zoom in and out to examine details more closely, and they can move around inside cabin interiors in a way that heightens the illusion of realism.
My Take on the Book
This book was amazing! It has such vivid images and the intricate diagrams and details that were left within the book for the reader provide so much information and insight. Also, the CD was shared a whole new level of detail that even the book does not. I was amazed at how much I learned within this book and I know that you will too!
