These amazing, almost 100-year-old covers of the weekly French magazine Le Petite Journal are from the online collection of the french National Library. They show what were the most exciting innovations of the 1920s, and how people in Europe imagined the future of technology and science.
The locomotion of tomorrow
Is this true?
Experience artificial lightning
In the vast solitude

Racing on Mount Revard
The parachute world record
Crossing the Sahara by automobile
Under the sea
The deadly work
