H.G. Wells is often referred to as the ‘father of science fiction’; his 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, but never before has there been a fully illustrated coffee table book in which the classic scenes are brought to life.

H.G. Wells: The War of the Worlds Illustrated is a 276-page hardback containing 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 included are an introduction by science fiction author Adam Roberts, a substantial feature on the life and works of H.G. Wells and an interview with Adam Rufino that showcases his concept sketches from the books development.

War of The Worlds

A beautifully illustrated and generously sized edition of HG Wells' famous and epic invasion story. The overall presentation here and quality of the paper used are top notch. Included are chapters on the author and the various adaptations of the story as well the artist's development of his style. Very highly recommended and shipped very quickly n carrier proof packing by Bitmap.

The War of the Worlds Illustrated

I really liked The War of the Worlds book. The introduction was interesting and informative for both HGWells and the artist behind the images. The images throughout the book are glorious, bold and colourful. The physical book was really nice and the inclusion of a digital copy allows me to keep it in good condition, as it is a little big to read on your travels. The images are slightly ahead of the story but really bring it to life. I would definitely recommend this book.

Fantastic!

The book arrived quickly and I was amazed at the effort that had been put into packaging it. Great product with lovely images. I’m also surprised it wasn’t more money. Happy customer!

Fantastic artwork and presentation

This is an awesome book; the story and the artwork feed off each other to make reading it really immersive and engaging. I love the style, which reminds me of the classic days of '90s 2000AD comic-book art.
