Verne, Twenty Thousand Leagues
Jules Verne (1828–1905) is the author of some of the world’s most famous books. This Paperblanks design features a page from Verne’s handwritten draft of his masterpiece Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. Jules Verne has the distinction of being the second most translated author in history, right between William Shakespeare and Agatha Christie.
Verne is remembered as one of the “Fathers of Science Fiction”. He is credited with being an inspiration for the steampunk genre, a movement championing science fiction based on 19th-century technology. Interestingly, Verne himself never aimed to be a scientific writer. Instead, he sought to share the beauty of the real world.
This cover in oceanic blue features a page from Verne’s handwritten draft of Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. The back cover shows an engraving depicting Captain Nemo observing “a squid of colossal dimensions.”
