These gorgeous 1871s illustrations for Jules Verne’s Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by artist Alphonse de Neuville are hauntingly reminiscent of Edward Gorey’s illustrations for H. G. Wells’s War of the Worlds.
Also see these stunning 1964 illustrations for the Verne biography The Man Who Invented the Future.
