“The Submarine ‘Nautilus’ in dry-dock 371 nautical miles NNE of Vanikoro” by Dave Warren. According to Verne’s Captain Nemo, Nautilus was built in secret on a deserted island in the Pacific Ocean using components ordered under various pretexts from all over the industrialized world. This is English artist Dave Warren’s conception of the submarine nearing completion but still on the stocks. Mr. Warren has been a film industry art director for 10 years, but he created his Nautilus drawings largely as an avocation. He lives near London. See the “Submarine Technology of Jules Verne”.
