About this title


Flying cities ... Martian colonies ... spaceships ... robots ... monorails ... bubble-topped cars ... atomic explosions ...
These have all appeared in both artistic renderings of the future for pulp magazines and as serious architectural proposals. In the twentieth century, high and low, fact and fiction mixed in ways that are now impossible to separate. Design references for the future were drawn from engineering, science fiction, avant-garde architecture, pulp fiction and mechanic magazines, aerodynamics, and the 1939 New York World's Fair. And many of these ideas have actually come to pass.
Out of Time: Designs for the Twentieth-Century Future is a collection of illustration art from the past century, portraying the indefatigable gee whiz of the imagined future.
