Book of the month
The story of the worldʼs most famous liner, told through a fascinating selection of important objects.
Showcasing a mixture of original artefacts, authentic reproductions, and items from Titanic’s sister ship Olympic, Titanic authorities Bruce Beveridge and Steve Hall have worked closely with White Star Memories to skillfully retell the story of Titanic in 50 objects. Poignant original artefacts include letters mailed from the ship; the butcher’s gold pocket watch; violinist Wallace Hartley’s sheet music, recovered with his body; carpenters’ tools used during construction; Turkish Bath wall tiles; and even a piece of coal from the wreck site.
Reproductions and treasures from Olympic include a full-scale Grand Staircase ‘Honour & Glory’ clock; a Bronze Grand Staircase cherub; dining chairs; tables; washstands; light fixtures; wood fittings; bedspreads; uniforms; and much more besides. Also with fascinating text alongside carefully chosen archive images, this beautiful book brings the story of Titanic vividly to life.
