(Disney, 1954) A production blue line print of the Nautilus submarine filming miniature from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. This plan and elevation provides a side and top view of what is arguably the most iconic aquatic sci-fi vehicle of all time. Draftsman John Meehan executed the drawing from an original design by art director Harper Goff. Awarded two Oscars for his work on the film, Goff greatly expanded on Jules Verne's original descriptions of the undersea vehicle, adding characteristic Victorian embellishments befitting a late 19th Century "modern" marvel, effectively inventing the steampunk aesthetic as a byproduct. Measuring 70"x36", the blue line is in fine condition, exhibiting only minor handling and yellowing at right. The original drawing from which it was struck was missing the upper left corner, which has transferred in the print.
