The year 2000, imagined by an illustrator in the year 1899

Terrifying, weird, yet somehow cute and completely nuts. The illustrations by French artist Jean-Marc Côté are very intriguing to say the least. Originally painted for cigar boxes or postcards, the En l’an 2000 pictures were never distributed. The story of these illustrations gets even more interesting when you know that they were only made famous 86 years later when a writer bought the postcards and used the drawings to accompany his words. The name of this writer: Isaac Asimov.

That whale-bus though.
