Titanic collection hits the globe (www) from Amsterdam, Netherlands
Hello  With the start in 2015 of this little online museum my Titanic collection has since become accessible to the public, the global community. Speaking of which, if you ever visited Amsterdam since 2002 then you may have seen and used my most special creation as a graphic designer. In 2001 I designed the upholstery pattern for the passenger seats in bus, tram and metro of my hometown's public transport operator GVB. The synthetic fabric with woven semi-abstract appliance of the company symbol is still present (renewed but unchanged in 2014-2015). Click image to enlarge seat photo. David

The articles' texts, images, etc. remain more or less in development.
Each item even scarcer than an exposed shoulder blade on Facebook!
Still more scarce and special collectibles to be featured!
