New to Penguin Classics, the great underwater adventure story in a stunning clothbound edition with original images.

In this thrilling adventure tale by the 'Father of Science Fiction', three men embark on an epic journey under the sea with the mysterious Captain Nemo aboard his submarine the Nautilus. Over the course of their fantastical voyage, they encounter the lost city of Atlantis, the South Pole and the corals of the Red Sea, and must battle countless adversaries both human and monstrous.

Verne's triumphant work of the imagination shows the limitless possibilities of science and the dark depths of the human mind. This new version by award-winning translator David Coward brings Verne's novel vividly to life for a new generation of readers.

Part of Penguin's beautiful hardback Clothbound Classics series, designed by the award-winning Coralie Bickford-Smith, these delectable and collectible editions are bound in high-quality colourful, tactile cloth with foil stamped into the design.
