Illustration by Roux for J. Verne's Master of the World, 1903

George Roux (1853–1929) was a French artist and book illustrator. His best-known works today are a large number of illustrations he created for the science-fiction novels of Jules Verne, in the series Les voyages extraordinaires. He was the second-most prolific illustrator of Verne's novels, after Léon Benett, drawing the illustrations for 22 novels in the original editions of Verne's works with the publisher Pierre-Jules Hetzel. The first of them was L’Épave du Cynthia (The Salvage of the Cynthia, 1885) and the last was L'Étonnante aventure de la mission Barsac (The Barsac Mission, 1919).
