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 Enterprise 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.
