Brain pickings‘ found these gorgeous illustrations by Peter P. Plasencia for Franz Born’s 1964 biography of Verne  Jules Verne: The Man Who Invented the Future , and I thought I’d share them. They are so strong graphically, and I think the monochrome approach adds to that strength. Hope you like them too.
