5.0 out of 5 stars 'Queen Mary 2', 17 July 2007
This review is from: Queen Mary 2: The Birth of a Legend (Hardcover)
This book starts out with a brief hisory of the Queen Mary 2 project before embarking on a visual tour-de-force, covering everything from the cutting of the first plate through to the first arrival in New York. It then rounds out with a short, illustrated history of the Cunard line.

If you're looking for an in-depth narrative account of Queen Mary 2's history, then you should probably look elsewhere. This book excels almost purely because of the quality of its many photographs. Plisson is a true professional, and each and every photograph is artistic, often breathtaking, and always revealing. Despite the book being quite large, most of the time there is only one photograph per page, or occasionally a two page spread. You can probably imagine the resulting wealth of detail that can be seen. Captions are sparingly sprinkled throughout, bringing context to the images.

Although the ship has already received a number of visible updates, this volume is, and will likely remain, the most comprehensive visual reference for Queen Mary 2. Whether you're a casual ocean liner admirer, or a dedicated 'rivet counter', this book will not fail to impress you, and regardless of what detail - large or small - you happen to be looking for, you're guaranteed to find it.
