Arthur C Michael: Illustrations to THE WAR IN THE AIR by H.G. Wells

Arthur C. Michael was a British painter, etcher and illustrator, usually said to have been active between 1903 and 1928.

The War in the Air belongs to the STEAMPUNK ADVENTURES series. The STEAMPUNK ADVENTURES comprise an illustrated selection of classic Victorian speculative fiction, with each title being chosen for its quality, modern appeal and resonance with the steampunk movement of retro-futurism.


  The book was done in 1907: it appeared in various magazines as a serial in 1908 and it was published in the fall of that year. At that time the aeroplane was, for most people, merely a rumour !

This picture is not found in the book but was published in the magazines.
