David Winfield Like Watering the Ocean
Guelph, Canada: Self-published, 2012
120 pp., 15.2 x 22.9 cm., softcover
In the 1898 novella Futility by Morgan Robertson, an "unsinkable" ocean liner sinks in the North Atlantic, after striking an iceberg. A shortage of lifeboats causes more than half of the ship's 2500 passengers to drown. The ship was named the Titan.
Winfield's first artists' book culls information from newspapers, microfiche, and online sources regarding this possible prophecy of the 1912 sinking of the RMS Titanic.
