    1. Eigentlich ein faszinierendes Thema: Wie hat man sich in den letzten 50 Jahren die Zukunft vorgestell? Leider zeigt das Buch nur Bilder ohne Quellenangabe und ohne Hinweis auf die Entstehungszeit. Der einzige Text (in drei Sprachen) geht mit dem Thema sehr 'oberlehrerhaft' um. Es ist leicht, aus aktueller Sicht diese Zeit als 'technikgläubig' abzuwerten, wir bräuchten heute etwas der Aufbruchsstimmung aus dieser Zeit.


    2. Ich frage mich bei Taschen immer, wie die an das tolle Bildmateriel kommen. Die Icons-Reihe bietet für wenig Geld einen reichen Schatz an alten Bildern und Illustrationen. So auch in dieser Ausgabe. In sehr guter Qualität reproduziert zeigt es, wie man sich damals die Zukunft vorgestellt hat. Das Format ist leider etwas klein, aber dafür reiht sich das Buch gut im Bücherregal ein.


    3. These little icons books are great - if for nothing else than just a pop-culture reference. A little small - and the paper could be better. But overall, lots of images for an unbeatable price.



    4. This little book is a sampling of pop futurism from what the editor calls the Age of Optimism, namely the 20's, 30's, 40's, and 50's. In the introduction, it is pointed out that people in these decades had a special need to believe in a better future, because the present, and immediate past, had been so grim. In the 20's people tried to forget the meat grinder of the Great War, in the 30's they tried to get their minds off of the Great Depression, in the 40's they needed to believe that they wer [...]


    5. I love this paperback. Dozens of color pictures (mainly sourced from adverts) of the future created when optimism was in the air and one was led to believe that science would conquer most frontiers and life was going to be one long continuous weekend. Editor Jim Heimann has wisely restricted his choice of images from the mid-thirties to the start of the fifties, so they picture a very streamlined future. Amongst all the pictures are twenty-three super covers from the science and mechanics type [...]


    6. I absolutely love the art collected in this book, which consists of visions of the future from advertising, science fiction, and hobby magazines from about 1930 to 1970. My only complaint is not only that there are no page numbers, as an earlier critic pointed out, but that there is no information at all about the art. No dates given, no illustrators, no sources (name of magazine or advertiser), no context at all. Bruce McCall has a cute intro on the subject of retro-futurism, but he doesn't [...]
