Jules Verne Book On Schedule

The illustration project that I completed earlier this year with Barnes & Noble, Library of Wonder: Jules Verne, is scheduled to be in their stores, exclusively, on September 1, 2009. I was commissioned to do 60 black & white, full-page and spot illustrations for the book as well as endpapers and a colored cover piece. The three classic stories by Verne featured in this edition are Journey to the Center of the Earth, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Around the World In Eighty Days.

There's a Barnes & Noble gift certificate with this book's name on it. (Literally.)

The work you did for this book is your best work to date! I'm excited to see it in print

Thank you for the support and encouragement. It was the most work I have ever done for a single publication and I enjoyed the research and thought that I put into the illustrations. I hope you all enjoy it.

Hi Nate,

Just called my local B&N store and put in an order (not yet in stock).
They will call me when it is in.
I love the color cover! Look forward to the b&w interior page & spot illos!
Best,
Jim Barron
