Synopsis

Classics Illustrated Deluxe Around the World in 80 Days by Loic Dauvillier, Jules Verne, Aude Soleilhac

Jules Verne's adventure story about a wager to circumvent the globe in 80 days was so popular when it was first published that it spawned several real-life copycats who tried to replicate the adventures of Phileas Fogg and his valet Passepartout. Artist Aude Soleilhac's vibrant and detailed work captures the numerous people and places encountered in Verne's epic tale, which still manages to elicit wonder and excitement in readers more than 125 years after it was first published.
