Following the release of his spectacular Moby Dick: A Pop-Up Book, paper-crafting genius Sam Ita gives Jules Verne’s engrossing undersea story, 20,000 Leagues under the Sea, an equally unique and amazing presentation. Ita literally takes graphic novels into another dimension with breathtaking designs that pop, flaps that lift, parts that move, and art that astonishes. There’s nothing like it out on the market.
You won’t believe your eyes as you join Captain Nemo on an unforgettable adventure: submarines, sea monsters, and even the lost city of Atlantis (complete with ancient artifacts, temples, and columns) rise from the page as if emerging from the waves. Take a 3-D look inside Jules Verne’s visionary submarine; sit with the sailors at their lobster-laden table; pull a lever to move the diving gauge; and face a giant squid as its slippery tentacles attack the Nautilus and her crew.
Spawned from the mind of horror king and Origins award winner C.J.

Price, Ph.D., professor of both theology and philosopy, founder & editor in chief of Crypt of Cthulhu, executor of the Lin Carter estate, current head of Lovecraft's KLM club (the worlds first professional sci fi/horror club).
