20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
An American frigate, tracking down a ship-sinking monster, faces not a living creature but an incredible invention — a fantastic submarine commanded by the mysterious Captain Nemo. Suddenly a devastating explosion leaves just three survivors, who find themselves prisoners inside Nemo’s death ship on an underwater odyssey around the world from the pearl-laden waters of Ceylon to the icy dangers of the South Pole . . .as Captain Nemo, one of the greatest villians ever created, takes his revenge on all society.
More than a marvelously thrilling drama, this classic novel, written in 1870, foretells with uncanny accuracy the inventions and advanced technology of the twentieth century and has become a literary stepping-stone for generations of science fiction writers.
3-D Coloring Book--My First Geometric Designs
3-D Geometric Designs
The illusion of three-dimensional drawings lie in the use of isometric perspective, in which the artist uses parallel lines and congruent angles to depict geometric objects. The eye tends to introduce incongruities in perspective, such as the way in that a straight road appears to narrow as it stretches away from the viewer. Isometric perspective, however, adheres to the true specifications of the object, portraying uniformity where the eye would suggest otherwise. The fantastic illusion of depth in these illustrations can be further enhanced with the use of color or shading to fool the eye and captivate the mind. These 31 amazing images can be colored to emphasize their solidity or shape; they can also be copied, expanded, or used as a source of graphic and design inspiration. They are a wonderful and fascinating way for young and old alike to study geometrical perspective or color creatively.
