This giant load of empty in my core, if filled, would likely have elevated this Gawd dim it, bollocks, ShazBot and shit snacks This giant load of empty in my core, if filled, would likely have elevated this from a really good read to a cozy memory-rewind of simpler, happier times. So, yes, it hurts So far, so good.
Since then, the list has grown and grown, as has the popularity of the page. Examination of the many designs reveals relationships between them.
Cross-pollination has occurred when designers who viewed the page produced new boats incorporating features they saw here. What began as a passive collection has become an active inspiration. Ken Anslow records some interesting thoughts about creative cross-pollination and differing visions evoked by a writer's words.
Read them on his blog. Originally, the catalog was limited to versions of the Nautilus that I considered compatible or consistent at least in part with Jules Verne's description. As the collection has grown I've expanded the criteria for inclusion. Sometimes a Nautilus is here because it has a prominent feature similar to a design already included, sometimes because it is true to Verne's spirit if not his words, sometimes because it purports to be Verne's Nautilus, and sometimes simply because I find it cool.
The result is a much more diverse collection.
Although interesting in their own way, the versions from the original League of Extraordinary Gentlemen graphic novel and the movie's very different "Sword of the Sea" design, are still excluded because these are not the Nautilus of 20, Leagues under the Sea, or even Mysterious Island, but a new generation.
Most illustrations are more or less the same scale for comparison.
Some of the designers identify their creations as the Nautilus, some as other submarines inspired by the Nautilus or from the same era, and at least one as not related to the Nautilus at all. I invite you to look for the relationships among them all. In I conducted an extensive survey of illustrated editions of 20, Leagues and added the interesting designs I found, dated from to These are usually identified with the word "illustrated" and are mostly 2D CorelDraw recreations.
At least one of these was originally published many years earlier than the edition I saw and the same may be true of others. Because of the unavailability of these illustrations, I've taken the liberty of including small copies of some copyrighted images.
I will remove any of these if the copyright holder has a problem with this. There's a unique story behind each of the designs featured here. When the designer provided some explanation I've included it in my description.
One designer, Paul Kreutzer, wrote a feature-by-feature narrative describing his design process that you can read here. Another, Roman Ceano, with help from his daughter Rose, has imagined an interesting and plausible illustrated back story that builds on Jules Verne's own semi-sequel Mysterious Island.It is of course the conspiracy theory to end all conspiracy theories.
But Rene has now put all his findings into a startling book entitled NASA Mooned America. Published by himself, it’s being sold by mail order – and is a compelling read.
