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.

Insane production value

I'm glad that I haven't read The War of the Worlds before making this purchase, because reading it for the first time through this book was a pleasant and thrilling experience. First, the paper and printing quality are insanely high. The paper is very thick and the colors are vivid. Second, the illustration concepts and their production really add to the experience of reading the book. As for the story, well, this is a 100 years classic. I loved it, just like some of the other H.G. Wells books that I have already read. I'd love to see more like this from Bitmap Books.

A classic Sci-Fi story in a very nice package.

The material used feels like high quality, the print is excellent and the artwork helps you immerse yourself in the story.

Aside from retro collection, an excellent addition from BB

The print quality is astonishing (as always)! I like the content and the chapter's progression. I'm not very familiar with "the war of the worlds". I just knew about Orson Wells telling that novel live on Radio. So for me, it's a real discovery. Far better than I thought. I liked it very much!
