Hrm, thanks for the link, Lee. Very gold, isn't it - quite lush. If you're interested, check out Mike T's site, www.titanicbooksite.com. He's got a page on Robert Shepherd's Lost on the Titanic, a book about the 'Great Omar'. The page includes a more colourful computer generated recreation of the 'bejewelled' etc front cover: Rob Shepherd.
About fifteen years ago, I taped a documentary called "Treasures of the Titanic," which featured a segment on how the book was made and what it looked like. It had thousands of in-lays and on-lays and must have weighed as much as a concrete block. I don't think it will ever be recovered, but I've always wondered what, if anything, remains of it and where it is (or once was) in the wreck.
