New Art Print Added in New Series of Victorian "Steampunk" Art

"The Nautilus Engine Room"
11" x 17" Photographic print (full bleed)

In what I'm hopping will become a series of "steampunk" type art, I just added a recently completed piece reproduced from one of the many beautiful engravings found in the early editions of Jules Verne's "20,000 Leagues Under The Sea." In this image we see the mysterious Captain Nemo giving Professor Aronnax a tour of the engine room of his infamous vessel, the Nautilus. 

Many 19th century illustrations such as these are under the public domain, but this one is specially reproduced here in an atmospheric and aged quality and with gritty color tones (The original engraving was composed entirely of black linework).

Printed on high quality photo paper. This piece is printed in an entirely photochemical process, assuring you the highest quality reproduction. This is not a cheap ink-jet print. Print size is 11 inches wide and 17 inches tall and is shipped carefully rolled in a durable cardboard mailing tube.
