Jean Marc Cote
I thought these drawings by Jean Marc Cote made a rather nice follow on from the New Years Day post, Visions of the Future.
Cotes' drawings from 1899 depicted a vision of the year 2000, and were planned as cigarette cards to celebrate the fin- de-siecle. However the publisher went bust, and the cards were never released!
The images here are taken from Henry Holts' 1986 book Future days, with an interesting, introduction by Isaac Asimov.
