A project about the Titanic and how she communicated the most famous distress calls in maritime history.
One side of the double sided A2 poster features facts about the ship, her Marconi Wireless radio system, ship call signs and the impact the Titanic's tragedy had on maritime laws. The other side of the poster is a map of the Atlantic ocean that night using the different ship's call signs to represent their whereabouts in relation to the Titanic (whose call sign was MGY). The poster folds down and inside can be found stamp sheets, mini sheets and a first day cover.
The postage stamps feature the distress calls the Titanic sent out in chronological order while the mini sheets included hold more facts about the ship like the 20,000 bottles of beer on board or the 34,000 kilograms of fresh meat.
Fonts: Raleway, Univers and Akzidenz Grotesk (one of the typefaces used for printing on board the ship).
