Description

Legendary Journeys: Ships unfolds the enthralling history of sea-going vessels as they sailed across the globe, from the invention of simple rafts and dugouts to the new technologies of today's luxury liners. Ten two-stage sliders with die-cuts and flaps make dramatic features that pull out to reveal amazing details of the world's iconic ships and their inner workings. You can also share the experience of passengers sailing on the world's great ships, including Captain James Cooke, botanist Joseph Banks and Molly Brown who survived the sinking of the TITANIC.
