Titanic 100th Anniversary WP Commemorative Series

100th Anniversary
WP Commemorative Series
Author:  Jess Lomas
Published by Wilkinson Publishing Pty Ltd

Available in bookstores near you.
Included are a couple photos to give you an idea of the beauty of this publication.  For all Titanic fanatics, this commemorative edition is highly prized.  Titanic 100th Anniversary explores the history and building by 3000 workers over a three year period, while exploring the decks and amenities, complete with photos of first and second class menus dated April 2, 10 and 14 (two separate menus for the second and first class passengers, none could be found for the third class).  The photography often graces full page and two sheet spreads in colour and in black and white.
From the building, the voyage and the fateful night to finding the Titanic, it is all covered, albeit not in great detail.  There is mention of a few of the survivors, with photographs and a write-up of their experience.  Also mentioned is Ismay, Captain Smith and Astor.  James Cameron's movie, Titanic, receives some coverage as well.  (a commemorative issue wouldn't be complete without mentioning the famous film starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo Di Caprio)
Finally, this edition includes a list of those lost at sea (which may not be all-inclusive), a time-line and Titanic folk-lore.

Well worth the purchase for collectors of memorabilia and Titanic fans.
