When I saw the trailer for Titanic 3-D before The Hunger Games, a wave of nostalgia hit me like a ton of freezing ocean water, drowning any cynicism I might have had about the 1997 blockbuster or the upcoming 3-D rendering (Apr. 4). In time for the centenary of the doomed ocean liner’s sinking and the re-release, Harper Design has issued an all-new paperback edition of the best-seller James Cameron’s Titanic, which could be found in many a sixth-grader’s backpack in the late ’90s. The re-issue sports a snazzy new lenticular cover, bringing Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Rose (Kate Winslet) off the page. It also features 26 never-before-seen images from the film studio’s archive, some of which we have here. Cue up the Celine Dion and take a look!

“The most expensive set of rooms on Titanic were the so-called parlor suites, decorated in various individual styles. The two most luxurious suites of rooms had their own private promenade decks.”

NEXT: “Jack, I’m so … lukewarm.”

“Kate’s hypothermia makeup and digitally added breath made the water seem freezing cold. It was actually more than 80 degrees.”

“A rare outtake of the actors as they prepare for a scene.”
