The Titanic Coloring Book by Dover Coloring
The Titanic Coloring Book

After the Titanic sank, and in the week following as the passengers travelled back to New York on Carpathia, the primary rescue ship, the victims described the horrors of their experiences to a young artist who sketched them out. He made many drawings during that week and later I believe they were used during the Disaster Hearings. Some of these drawings are very reminisent of those 1912 Survivor-described artwork pieces.

I am a longtime Titanic collector and I have amassed many, MANY Titanic books and items. But I am very excited about this new book! It has in ONE volume, the information usually contained in three or four or more! I'm also looking forward to new pictures and information as well. I can't wait to get my hands on this one!

People talk too much! People fill up the air with speech. Many books are bursting with words that say nothing. In the midst of this, it's a treasure to find a small volume that has no words at all, and yet speaks louder and says more than many other books can. A quiet book it may be, but it'a a book that will stir the inner spirit out of quietness.

Vibrant pictures, thoughtful imagery, delicious surprises. A book to be 'read' over and over! *smile*
