19th Century French Artists Predicted The World Of The Future In This Series Of Postcards

If you’ve ever struggled to imagine how life will change over the next century thanks to technology, take comfort – you’re not alone. Over 100 year ago, some French artists tried to do the same thing.

During that time, one of the most influential science fiction writers ever had been busy letting his imagination run wild with all the possibilities that the age of science was opening up. That writer was Jules Verne, whose collection called Voyages Extraordinaires contained 55 novels, including the well known “20,000 Leagues Under The Sea” and “Around The World In 80 Days”. He even wrote a short work imagining what life would be like a millennium in the future called In The Year 2889.
