Inhaltsangabe: This is the 2nd unabridged edition of a small comics-format book first published in 1991. The book offered Steven M. Johnson's illustrations of his preposterous, plausible and prophetic inventions and scenes of the future. For this new edition, the author-illustrator dug into old files and boxes of proposed layouts and located nearly 100 concept sketches?redrawing them when they needed more definition?that had never appeared in the first book. It is 82 pages longer than the original book, and gives a unique and imaginative view of possible future scenes based on technologies and cultural trends in 1990. Many familiar features of the world today, such as small cellphones and the Web, did not exist then. Some readers will discover that the book's vivid, strange or humorous images still seem fresh, and that today's America looks a lot like what Mr. Johnson imagined 22 years earlier.
Über den Autor: In 1974, at age 35 Steven M. Johnson had a sideline business creating cartoons for publication in magazines. His satirical images on environmental issues were appearing each issue in The Sierra Club Bulletin, later renamed Sierra Magazine. An editor asked him to invent and draw 16 satirical images of future recreation vehicles and he produced more than 100 ideas before he decided to stop. Since then, his whimsical inventions have appeared in magazines newspapers and books in the U.S., Japan and Sweden. They are often seen online at sites that feature unusual ideas for products and inventions. His three books display his often odd, whimsical, plausible and at times prophetic ideas. His three careers have all touched on the subject of the future, first as an urban planner working on future city plans, second as a newspaper illustrator creating a weekly cartoon panel that showed his ideas for future products, and lastly in the R&D section of a Japanese auto maker working as a futurist working in a small department that studied future trends and scenarios.
