CommentsFrançois Schuiten: “Cover of Jules Verne published for the first time in 1994 to Hachette Publishing. This novel, made ​​just before “Five Weeks in a Balloon” was found in a chest by one of the heirs of the famous writer a few months ago. This Science-Fiction story , written in 1860, evokes the Paris of 1960. Jules Verne here reveals a novelist anticipation, in a very unexpected vein. It was a great emotion to illustrate this lost story.”
