Akira Himekawa is the collaboration of two women, A. Honda and S. Nagano. Together they have created nine manga adventures featuring Link and the popular video game world of The Legend of Zelda, including Ocarina of Time, Oracle of Seasons and Four Swords. Their most recent work, Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, was serialized in Shogaku Rokunensei.


In this striking book, amazing photographs from the submerged Titanic are presented side-by-side with illustrations and original pictures taken in 1912 to show the two sides of the tragic liner. It is a haunting and also moving experience, and at times an astonishing one. Parts of the liner from those 1912 pictures are instantly recognizable in the wreck that now lies 12,000 feet below the Atlantic. But instead of chandeliers and glitter there is the weird blue light of remote-controlled probes, and the spectral sight of fish drifting around great columns and staircases. The large-format book acts as a companion to the 3-D movie made by James Cameron, who directed the blockbusting film Titanic in 1997. For this latest expedition he had mini-probes built, small enough to pass through portholes and windows to reach the heart of the great liner. The result is a collection of shots taken in parts of the ship not seen for almost a century. In that freezing depth a surprising amount has been preserved. Among the more spectacular pictures are staterooms on A-deck, a mahogany luggage rack with its contents in place and a first-class parlour suite. The text seems almost incidental to all this but it tells an astounding story of its own - not just about how the Titanic sank but also about the expedition to take these photographs, the technical difficulties that were encountered and overcome, and the dangers faced. Don Lynch is historian of the Titanic Historical Society and author of a previous book on the ship, and Ken Marschall specialises in artistic impressions of the Titanic. The book can't be faulted for its human and technical detail, while the photographs are historic items in their own right. (Kirkus UK)
