Space Project: First Men In The Moon

The book that I have been given to do my concept art for is H.G. Wells' 'The First Men in the Moon'. I have not read this book before but I have read other books by H.G. Wells, although he doesn't write the type of science-fiction that I particuarly enjoy. I was later told that there was a film adaptation of the book with special effects done by Ray Harryhausen whose work I have seen in plenty of films.

Although I haven't seen the film in its entirety it is very similar in style to other H.G. Wells adaptations that I have seen from the era such as War of Worlds and The Time Machine, these are films that could be described as 'retro sci-fi'.
