This 18″x24″ book poster contains the full text of Around the World in Eighty Days by Jules Verne.
Published in 1873 in its original French, Around the World in Eighty Days is an adventurous tale of world circumnavigation by Englishman Phileas Fogg and his French valet Passepartout. These two men race against the clock to win a 20,000-pound bet—equivalent to over 2 million pounds today! Breezing through major world cities like Bombay (now Mumbai), Hong Kong, and San Francisco, this action-packed story is beloved by children and adults like.
Interestingly enough, Phileas Fogg does not actually travel via hot air balloon in the book, using steamer and rail instead. Nonetheless, a hot air balloon has become the most recognized icon for this literary masterpiece. A little innovation, indeed!
