Titanic by Ian Coutts

Book Description

Over seventy years after the great ocean liner sank, marine geologist Robert Ballard discovered the wreck of the Titanic 12,500 feet beneath the surface of the icy North Atlantic. Now Ballard presents the world with an opportunity to live the story of the famous ship through his amazing last great images, before Titanics remains are gone forever. This is a story told in rusted, twisted metal and debris, but it is also a human story told in a porcelain dolls face, an empty shoe, and an abandoned derby hat. Titanic: The Last Great Images maps the wreck of the ship from a variety of perspectives to give a completely new picture of the triumph and tragedy that was Titanic. This illustrated volume-and a National Geographic special-weave the strands of the ocean liners story together in renderings done by the ships original designers, charts of the debris field, and period illustrations. Robert Ballard provides the clearest, most accurate view of the ship we have ever seen. In crisply detailed underwater photography, disintegrating ruins and shattered pieces reveal pride of workmanship, a rigidly defined class system, and indelible images of terror and courage. This book shows what makes the Titanic worthy of the worlds undying fascination.

Author Biography - Ian Coutts

Dr. Robert Ballard was the first to discover the wreck of the "Titanic," on September 1, 1985, seventy-three years after the great vessel sank. He is one of the world's leading marine geologists and has been instrumental in the development of new underwater exploration technology. Dr. Ballard is a passionate advocate for the preservation of the "Titanic" as it lies, arguing that salvaging and looting are desecrating the historical wreck. He resides in Connecticut between expeditions.
