    François Schuiten Jules Verne, Paris au XXème Siècle Original Art Cover (Editions Hachette, 1994). The cover for the Jules Verne book "Paris in the 20th Century" published for the first time in 1994 by Hachette editions, the story was found in a safe by one of the heirs of the illustrious writer, just a few months before the publication of "Five Weeks in a Balloon". This Science Fiction story, written in 1860, evokes a futuristic view of Paris in 1960. Jules Verne shows himself to be an anticipation novelist, and takes a very unexpected turn with this story. The artist noted, "It was very emotional to illustrate this lost story". The illustration was also used as a cover for "L'Horloger Du Rêve". Acrylic on art paper with an image area of 15.5" x 25.5". Framed and in Excellent condition.
