About the Book

Jules Verne's immortal adventure …

Published in 1864, Jules Verne's tale of an ambitious professor exploring a subterranean world in which our planet's primordial past still lives may be the first modern science fiction novel – and it is certainly the first masterpiece of an author who would become the “father of science fiction” and one of the most read, beloved, and influential storytellers ever.

Now Easton Press and artist Samuel Araya present a unique collectable edition of Jules Verne's immortal classic: Journey to the Center of the Earth, the Deluxe Illustrated Edition.

Featuring original artwork created by renowned illustrator Samuel Araya exclusively for this luxurious edition, the Deluxe Illustrated Edition Journey to the Center of the Earth will be limited to exactly 1,200 copies – and each copy will be personally signed by artist Samuel Araya.

'Groundbreaking' 19th century science fiction illustrated with 21st artwork.

Jules Verne long aspired to create a new literary form he called le Roman de la Science: speculative adventure firmly grounded in the possibilities of known technology and science. Journey to the Center of the Earth marked the fulfillment of his ambition and the emergence of a storyteller so masterful that a century later Ray Bradbury would declare, “We are all, in one way or another, the children of Jules Verne.”

To illustrate this new Deluxe Edition of Jules Verne's masterpiece, Easton Press has chosen Samuel Araya, winner of the 2015 World Fantasy Award for best Artist. Araya's art combines hand drawing and painting and photography with digital 'painting' and manipulation to create intensely evocative and often surreal images.

The Deluxe Illustrated Edition Journey to the Center of the Earth features nine full-color paintings, including a frontispiece, each of which is hand-tipped into the book and protected by translucent overlays. And these powerful paintings are exclusive to this limited 1,200 copy autographed Deluxe Illustrated Edition.
