The Illustrated Voyages Extraordinaires of Jules Verne

Open Culture has a bit on the 4,000 illustrations in Jules Verne’s works, including a link to all of them. “Verne and his editor Pierre-Jules Hetzel commissioned these illustrations from no fewer than eight artists, a group including Edouard Riou, Alphonse de Neuville, Emile-Antoine Bayard, and Léon Benett — all well-known artists in late 19th-century France, and made even more so by their work in the Voyages Extraordinaires.” (Thanks, Stephanie!)
