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.”

“In Halifax, right before the start of principal photography, testing Kate’s dress in the hotel pool.”

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