Cover (at right): Painting © Ken Marschall 1974
Back cover (Below): Walt Disney/Everett/Rex USA
First page (Not Shown): A shipping register entry from April 10, 1912, logs the very first departure of the luxury liner Titanic from the port of Southampton, England, as she heads out on the initial leg of her only voyage. The ship would strike an iceberg and sink four days later. Todd Gipstein/Corbis
Pages 2-3 (Not Shown): Consider this a ghost ship. This is Titanic's twin sister Olympic heading out to sea after leaving Queenstown, Ireland—presenting the precise same image that Titanic did just after 2 p.m. on Thursday, April 11, 1912, on her maiden, and last, voyage. Ralph White/Corbis
Content pages (Not Shown): In a photograph taken in 1987, the Titanic rests on the ocean floor more than 12,000 feet below the surface of the North Atlantic. Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute
