Hidden Gems: Books Unjustly Dusty #7
A new Titanic expedition organized by RMS Titanic Inc. and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution is taking place right now. They plan to map the 3-mile long debris field, inventory the thousands of artifacts remaining on the sea floor and build highly-detailed 3D maps of the hulk. You can follow their tweets at Twitter-RMS Titanic.
The new expedition happens just in time to renew interest in these classics that have become just a bit dusty.
Titanic: An Illustrated History is a beautifully done book that takes you from the construction of the Titanic at Belfast’s shipyard of Harland & Wolff to the eerie photographs of the tragic wreckage 13,000 feet below on the Atlantic floor.
This unjustly dusty entry Titanic is a bit of an oddity. Filmed in 1943 it is a German World War II propaganda retelling of the sinking of the Titanic.
