Classics Reimagined, The Time Machine

Classics Reimagined, The Time Machine is an unabridged reprinting and reformatting of the classic by H.G. Wells with gorgeous new illustrations by Alessandro Lecis and Alessandra Panzeri of Ale + Ale studio. Released 14th May 2019 by Quarto on their Rockport imprint, it's 208 pages and available in hardback and ebook formats.

Besides being important for its historical and cultural significance, The Time Machine is a cool story and worth a re-read every once in a while. This unabridged print edition is beautifully enhanced by the inclusion of the multimedia collage illustrations (see cover art). I spent a lot of time just looking at them. They're detailed, colorful, and expertly rendered.

The hardback edition would make a superlative gift, library selection, etc. The ebook version would make a nice addition to the basic classics home library.

Lovely work. Five stars.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
