Around the World in 80 Postcards

ed12c2d75

Lehel Kovacs is a Budapest-based artist and illustrator who dreamed of traveling around the world. When those travel plans did not pan out, he decided to take a virtual world tour using Google Street View. That inspired the creation of postcards that trace the journey of Phineas Fogg from Jules Verne’s 1873 book Around the World in 80 Days.

Kovacs funded the project with a very successful Kickstarter campaign which ended yesterday. You can purchase sets of postcards from the series and art prints on his website.
