Derrick Santini’s cover illustration is grim and atmospheric, showing the Titanic in the process of being wrecked. The tumultuous sea is the stuff of nightmares. It doesn’t look like a happy read, but what a good idea from Bainbridge, who focuses on the four days between the Titanic’s setting sail from Southampton and striking an iceberg back in 1912. Every Man for Himself’s jacket is designed by Peter Kruzan of Design Ink. The name of the author in stark black and white contrasts with the title, written in a trailing font which looks like the writing on the side of a boat. Published by Duckworth, priced 14.99.
