Admiring the aesthetics accompanying H. G. Wells’ war of the worlds, made at the same time as Magnus Volk’s Pioneer in 1897.
‘Pioneer’ (Daddy long legs) and H. G. Wells’ novel ‘The War of the Worlds’ were both released publicly in 1896-1897. Eerie, imaginative, ambitious (with fragility ) they all show how exciting it was, ideas thoroughly of their late Victorian time. The illustrations first by British artist Warwick Goble, and then reprinted in 1906 with those by Henrique Alvim Corrêa.
