Hi there!

By amazing coincidence, we discussed this here quite recently when I received my copy!

It's a great book.

I would love  a copy of this book but unfortunately I do not have one.  Peter, I can image what you mean when you say that photos do not do justice to the content of the book.

I have 2 of these brochures in my family and just wondered how much they are worth? They are truly fascinating to look at  :) and all the pages are binded the right way.  ;)

I have had one of these for 5/6 years, think I paid about £25 on ebay for it....

I tried to buy one on ebay this year and was unsuccessful.  the winning bid was about £100 so you done well to get it for £25 Andrew.

Original QE2 1969 Transatlantic Brochure (Book)

A very very special gift arrived in the mail for me today. It came from fellow Cunard Insights Lecturer and his wife who sailed on QE2's maiden transatlantic.

The book is about 50cm long by 30cm wide, and has some amazing imagery.

It details the history of Cunard, QE2 to date, the people behind the ship (Sir Basil, Commodore Warwick etc) and the interior.

I particularly like the artists rendition of the Grill Room!

Seeing these pictures makes me all envious! Looks like a gorgeous book, and I am looking forward to the day when I can leaf through one of them when visiting a QE2Story friend :) .

Seems like they are gradually making their way to owners who really appreciate them. Congratulations, Chris, this one has found an excellent home!

I tend to prefer these water-coloured cutaway drawings to the computer generated 3D views of today.

They had more style and personality.

This book in itself is a beautiful work of art.

The QE2 Transart Brochure is one QE2 item I would love to possess.  The copy you have been given Chris looks in particularly good condition.  Enjoy!  :)

QE2 had been waiting alongside in Dubai for nearly 12 years.  Please restore her Lifeboats and Tenders to where they truly belong - she looks naked without them - please spare her this ignominy.

I purchased a Transart Brochure from Ebay last year and just absolutely love it.  It is in good condition, although it did not have it's original box.  I had previously bid a couple of times and been unsuccessful, but this time I was determined to get it. 

I love looking at the photos of the ship in her original decor and the section with the plan of the ship detailing all the areas of the ship from the funnel to the fresh water cooling plan is brilliant.
