As 2012 marks the 175th anniversary of P&O, we have been working on a number of books to honour the occasion.
P&O Heritage has also just released a coffee table book, P&O: Across the Oceans, Across the Years, which is richly illustrated with over 200 images of treasures from our collection. It takes a look back at the company during the age of empire and a bygone time when travelling P&O captured the imagination of writers from Thackeray to Noël Coward.
In addition the book takes a curator's tour of the company's art collection which dates back to P&O's foundation in 1837. The result is an engaging homage to one of the most famous companies afloat, in its 175th anniversary year.
It is published by ACC Publishing group and is available to buy now through their website.
