    The Coming Race is one of those fabulous Victorian stories in which our intrepid explorer discovers an alien race similar enough to humans to bear comparison, but different in at least one major way. We then get a series of dialogues between the explorer and an alien representative arguing over which is better. Edward Bulwer-Lyttons fictional world is semi-Utopian; the alien way is more /5. Later he taught at the Royal College of Art and is most famous today for his type designs for the London Underground. Initially Johnston’s work was encouraged by followers of William Morris. Morris, one of the founders of the British Arts and Crafts movement, wanted to reform many areas of the arts.
