Diving the Thistlegorm

In what seems like a lifetime ago we scanned the SS Thistlegorm into 3D. The model remains the largest project we have ever undertaken and the questions the imagery posed triggered a far deeper look into the story of the ship.

It also triggered a much wider collaboration with Alex Mustard. Alex’s photography and research into the cargo really worked so well with the orthophotos, 3D models, historical records and 3D reconstruction.

So it just made a lot of sense for Alex, Jon Henderson, Mike Postons and myself to co-author a book about the wreck. Initially available as an Apple iBook the content is now available in both hardback (available now) and paperback (early 2021) editions.

The first copies arrived earlier this week. The first thing I did was sit down and have a read. We are delighted with the layout design, reproduction and printing. It really brings the subject to life when it’s presented as a tangible physical printed edition.

Nothing beats a comfortable chair and a good book on a winter’s evening
