Bei meiner Recherche für meine Examensarbeit stieß ich auf diese wunderschönen Illustrationen für Wells’ The War of the Worlds (Amazon-Partnerlink) von Autor Edward Gorey.

Gorey illustrated a special edition of H. G. Wells’s The War of the Worlds for the celebrated Looking Glass Library series, published in 1960 under theNew York Review of Books Classics imprint. One of Gorey’s inimitable pen-and-ink drawings adorns the beginning of each chapter.
