Hawcock - Ships. Pop-up book of ships - Maritiem
Pop-up book of ships is a dramatic pop-up journey into the world's maritime past, presenting various maritime cultural innovations.
From the early explorers such as the Santa Maria to the famous Mayflower; from marauding pirate ships to frigates like the Bonhomme Richard and the U.S.S. Constitution; from a quaint Mississippi riverboat to the luxurious s.s. Normandie ocean liner and a superbly crafted America's Cup Yacht; from impressive aircraft carriers such as the Intrepid or Eenterprise to the most advanced nuclear submarine.
Readers will learn about the H.M.S. Victory, labeled a first-rate ship, a designation that was used as early as the Eighteenth Century by the British Royal Navy for its largest ships mounting 100 guns or more; or that unlike a traditional square-rigged ship, the sails of a Chinese junk can be moved toward the long axis of the ship, allowing a junk to sail into the wind, to name only two.
Pop-up book of ships presents a dynamic history of some of the world's greatest maritime adventures.
Colorful, informative, and fun, pop-up book of ships adeptly showcases maritime adventure and lure of the sea, and is a fascinating book for sailors and seamen of all ages.
