Henri de Montaut ?
Montaut was a successful magazine cartoonist who also specialized in portraits—as in his rendering of the three Vernian astronauts Barbicane, Nicholls, and Michel Ardan 27 —the latter of whom, incidentally, was drawn from the likeness of the famous Parisian photographer and daredevil Nadar, whose witty personality and name via anagram were immortalized by Verne in this work. Montaut was also known to have contributed many works to the popular weekly French magazine La Vie Parisienne.
Alphonse de Neuville was another much-admired painter in France during this period. He collaborated with Riou on Vingt mille lieues sous les mers —all of the illustrations from chapter 12 onwards are his Neuville was also responsible for a small number of illustrations in the best-selling novel Le Tour du monde en His work has. The latter piece, showing the American flag securely fixed above the module, proved to be amazingly prophetic when Frank Borman of the Apollo 9 moon expedition landed in the Pacific, one hundred years later, only two or three miles from the point mentioned in the book.
Jules Ferat ? I would love to have seen what he would have done with 20, Leagues or Journey to the Center of the Earth! Benett runs a very close second, though his later work is not very good. Servadac , and Georges Tiret-Bognet ? Benett knew how to capture the real essence of all these exotic tropical locales. His notes and journal drawings were like an inexhaustible museum of our travels And the exactitude of his illustrations were a perfect complement to the descriptions. Finally, Benett knows better than most how to frame an outdoor scene so that it is both real and picturesque 45 , vibrating with richness.
He is not expressive. The faces of his characters are neutral; his locales are devoid of poetry His compositions are impersonal in the blandest and narrowest sense of the word This latter illustrator contributed, for example, the excellent portrait of Phileas Fogg and a rather fine one of Passepartout. In contrast,. This is the work which made Jules Verne world-famous. Finally, George Roux ? In designing the city, Roux seems to have been directly inspired by the latest advances in architecture Verne was well served by his designers to the very end. From onwards, the rapid development of two-toned lithography, photography, and photolithography slowly began to replace the older woodcut-engraving process in most publishing houses in France—primarily because these techniques were cheaper, faster, and much less labor-intensive.
Two illustrations, the first a halftone and the second a woodcut , are located within the first couple of chapters of this work And, effectively blurring the boundaries between fiction and reality, even a real photograph is included from time to time—e.

Simple illustrations and casual language for a coffee table book. This was cute and all, but absurdly short. I started reading it at the breakfast table this morning, and finished the book before I'd finished eating. It doesn't seem to have been written so much as designed. One page illustrations sit side by side with pages of text. The illustrations are often clever, and the text often brief. I've known a few people in my life who suffer from anxiety, but, while I appreciated the glimpse into the mindset, I don't feel that any deeply insightful understanding w This was cute and all, but absurdly short.
I've known a few people in my life who suffer from anxiety, but, while I appreciated the glimpse into the mindset, I don't feel that any deeply insightful understanding was achieved. It's a very shallow look at a very deep subject, less a book and more of an Internet meme. It's fun, but light and short.
I don't mean to sound too savage about it. It's well-intentioned, and some bits--the Space Invaders-inspired image in particular--did make me smile.

This is a book that might make a decent present for someone, but, if you buy it for yourself, you may feel cheated. I can't really recommend it, but, if it sounds interesting to you, by all means, check it out. Perhaps of more use to someone trying to understand what it is like to be anxious - I can think of a few people I'd get this for and go, 'Yup, this is how I feel most of the time'.
But I guess it was a little too 'thin' for me. I wanted it to go beyond 'this is anxiety' and give me a few words of comfort. And a nice fluffy hug. Also, pretty expensive for a book that took me about five minutes to read.
I feel better reading someone else's similar struggles with over commitement and stress. Now if I could only do better at not trying to do too much Why do we get anxious? What is it about us that make us feel that way? Is it us or the environment or the circumstances surrounding us?

I came across this book on a friend's blog and I knew that I had to have it on my bookshelf. This book is unlike anything I have read on anxiety and what it takes to calm down. I have read self-help books but Why do we get anxious? I have read self-help books but I also cannot classify this book in that category.www.cantinesanpancrazio.it/components/socehep/197-controllare-l.php

Catherine Lepage takes us through anxiety by distilling it for us into four habits that are very clear and plain to see that actually set anxiety into motion. They are: Accumulation of fatigue, Repressing emotions, setting goals too high and collecting responsibilities. Maybe the first step is to let go and then take a back seat how many of us actually want to do that at all?
It will not do all those things. It is a basic and most needed primer of our times — given the lifestyle choices we make and how perhaps we really do need to stop and smell the roses and not run all the time — from pillar to post, without getting anywhere at all. Firstly it caught me, when I saw single selected pictures secondly it disappointed me. After I had bought it. Beautifully composed and designed. I wanted more, as the ending felt a bit abrupt. I am so glad that finally there is a book that breaks down the unhealthy behaviours that aggravate anxiety.
It is a simple book that is helping people understand anxiety and the havoc that it can cause in anyone's life. No, it is not magically going to help you deal with anxiety or let you in about that magical trick.

But at least you will be a lot more aware. And that is the first step towards not letting anxiety get the better of you. Quite simply says everything I have ever wanted to say about living with a long term mental health condition. Catherine has done such a good job with this one! This should be a text book case study for how an illustrated book should be.
I love the creativity - right from having no table of contents, minimalist author description, etc. Coming to the content, I could relate to every single point she made. It helped me see my own madness more kindly. I'm grateful for her hard work. This journal style book and sketches about anxiety were good for me to read from my son, who also suffers from anxiety like I do.
Though the feelings and sketches were personal to the author, they helped open up some conversations between us that we might not have otherwise had. Would recommend not highly to anyone with anxiety for a quick, easy read.
Fines tranches d'angoisse
Cute and honest and true, but extremely short and not all that substantive. I feel like it would be a better infographic than book. Took two minutes to read but the book shared vivid emotion through art. This book found me in the midst of a month riddled with multiple panic attacks due to cumulative anxiety and I couldn't be more thankful. Exactly as it says, the observations illustrated in the book offer comfort to the worried mind that is most likely spiralling in its evaluations.
