I’ve discussed my interest in the late 19th century French writer and illustrator, Albert Robida, in a number of previous posts, but I thought I’d feature some more of his visionary art. These images come from his 1890 science-fiction novel Le Vingtième siècle. La vie électrique. A best-seller in its day, it contains the author’s predictions for society and technology in France by the mid-twentieth century, often for comedic purposes.
Gorgeous. Shades of William Blake in “L’Electricite.”
