Titanic was not only a ship that embodied technological achievement; she was a microcosm of western civilisation and its misplaced certainties in a gilded age before World War 1.

She was the second of an intended trio of huge passenger vessels built by Harland and Wolff for the White Star Line's premier service between Southampton and New York. When she sank, 1,500 of the 2,201 people on board lost their lives and the news caused shockwaves around the world.

Titanic: Icon of an Age is a comprehensive and richly illustrated chronicle of the great liner and her time. Over 250 stunning images - some never published before - combine with a wealth of Titanic facts, memorabilia and Michael McCaughan's accessible and authoritative text to give a detailed and evocative impression of the period and the world-famous ship.

Written and published in Belfast, the birthplace of the great lost ship and home of Titanic Belfast (the unique museum and discovery centre), this book is a vivid exploration of Titanic in its era and a compelling testament to a story that continues to reverberate across time.
