As well as gorgeous artwork and fascinating information on the journey itself, this book will also feature the crew, the equipment and cross-sections of the ship itself.

This stunning new piece of non-fiction comes straight from the winner of the BDC's New Designer of the Year award, and the author/illustrator behind Really Remarkable Reptiles.
