Three of a Kind - SP-350 "Denise"

Built in 1959, SP-350, also known as Denise, was Jacques Cousteau's "diving saucer" (Soucoupe Plongeante). Here are three illustrations of the two-man submarine.


The 1967 Eagle Annual carried a four-page feature on Cousteau's film, World Without Sun (Le Monde Sans Soleil) which featured the saucer in action. (You can view the article here).



This 1979 Russian postcard by Petr Pavlinov was one of a set of 32 featuring geographical discoveries.



World of Wonder was one of a number of educational magazines aimed at children that followed in the footsteps of Look and Learn.
