Often referred to as the ‘father of science fiction’, H.G. Wells’ tales of time travel and alien invasion have enthralled generations.

His 1898, novel, The War of The Worlds, tells the story of an invasion from Mars and the ensuing conflict between the martians and mankind. Over the years, there have been many cinematic adaptations and a musical version of the book, but never has there been a fully illustrated coffee table book with classic scenes brought to life.

H.G. Wells: The War of the Worlds Illustrated is a 276 page hardback book that contains the original book text, expertly brought to life through a series of illustrations by artist, Adam Rufino. The book contains nearly 100 full-colour artworks. Also in the book is an introduction by science fiction author Adam Roberts, a large feature on the life and works of H.G. Wells and an interview with Adam Rufino which showcases his concept sketches from the books development.

H.G. Wells: The War of the Worlds Illustrated

Amazing book, a very worthy addition to the Bitmap Books collection.

H.G. Wells: The War of the Worlds Illustrated

This is an excellent and well put together book with superb quality printing. There are additional sections, one about H.G. Wells and the story and a section about the illustrator where he takes us through his designs for the book.
