We publish a wide range of books about the Titanic and new books launched frequently covering all aspects of the disaster.
On 15 April 1912 the Royal Mail Steamer Titanic, then the largest passenger ship in the world and considered to be ‘unsinkable’, hit an iceberg and foundered with the loss of around 1,500 lives. The tragedy shook popular consciousness like no other, as the shock that Titanic’s famous safety measures had failed on her maiden voyage was compounded by grief for those who perished in the freezing waters of the North Atlantic. Titanic has become synonymous with myth and mystery, from the heroes, victims and villains of the disaster to the controversy over the ‘mystery ship’ that heard her distress call. Whether you want to know about her passengers, her sister ships Olympic and Britannic, her construction in the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast or her luxurious interiors, fixtures and fittings, the selection on offer here is sure to provide the perfect book on the world’s most famous ship.
