Yes, Jules Verne > way interesting, brainiac, man ahead of his time … I get that … but in this book about the great man it’s the illustrations that really do it for me.
Illustrated in 1964 by Peter Plasencia, it’s a beautiful example of one-colour genius. I love the work so much I even bought a copy. Now that’s saying something.
I might even read it.*
*no, I won’t.
