In the Abyss: The First Phase

Postby BryanI305 » Wed Jul 24, 2013 3:36 am

Hi, everybody.

When I was a kid I read Ballard's book on the discovery of the Titanic (for those wondering, this was before the craze in '97). One of the very first images I encountered has also been the one picture that has truly spoken to me about the tragedy of the Titanic sinking. It was an illustration from a French magazine, according to Ballard's caption. The image itself depicts the Titanic, still intact, at the bottom of the ocean. Above it is a fantastically enormous iceberg. It's a haunting image that evokes what I feel is the illustrator's awe and fear of what nature had been able to do to mankind's greatest achievement.

The title was in English, and it read: "In the Abyss: The First Phase." I've been attempting to find this image in the highest possible quality, as I wish to blow it up into a poster size to hang in my office. I've scoured the Internet without any luck. I contacted the company which lent the image to Ballard for the book but the representative I've been conversing with seems to be unable to locate it in their digital files. I figured, if anyone knows where I can find a decent copy, it would the enthusiasts.

So I come to you, good folk, in the hopes that you could help me out. I've even included a picture I took from the book so that there is no confusion about the illustration in question. Thank you all in advance.

The drawn was made by Henry Lanos and was published in "The Graphic" 27th April 1912. I don't know if or how you can get any modern copy of it.
