James Cameron's Titanic has broken box office records and
mesmerized, moviegoers around the world. The film's
historical details and shots of underwater wreckage have
brought to life the haunting story of the ocean liner and
its tragic maiden voyage. In Lost Liners, famed undersea
explorer and Titanic discoverer Robert Ballard takes readers
on a guided tour of the beginnings, heyday, and eventual
decline of the great Atlantic express liners.
Once the crown
jewels of transatlantic travel, the Lusitania, the Titanic,
the Britannic, and the Andrea Doria now rest on the ocean
floor, and together they comprise an extraordinary
underwater museum. Dozens of specially commissioned
illustrations from renowned Titanic artist Ken Marschall
lavishly depict the ships in their prime as well as in their
eerily poignant underwater repose. A seafloor visit using
high-quality underwater photography provides images of what
the liners look like today, and archival photographs and
memorabilia reveal the splendor that was.
Lost Liners is the
ultimate book on the great lost liners -- and an absolute
must-have for liner buffs and Titanic fans.
