Journey to the Center of the Earth

Journey to the Center of the Earth literature illustration books

Here’s an incredible image for your day. I don’t know its origins, so if anyone cares to enlighten me I’d love details. It almost looks like artwork for a poster from a 1960s-70s book or film? (via designspiration and phonometrician)

Update: My guess was not far off. This is actually a still from a 1980s movie called Emerald Forest. (thnx, drew!)
