Overview

Flying cities...rocketships...monorails...robots...bubble-topped cars...these are the visions of a select group of American designers, illustrators, and artists who, from the 1890s to the mid-1960s, devoted their talents to portraying the future. In Out of Time—both the book and the accompanying traveling exhibition sponsored by SITES (the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service)—Norman Brosterman gathers toghether the most exciting ideas of these forgotten heroes of "techno-futuristic" art.

Many of these images were created as illustrations for science fiction, popular science, and pulp-fiction magazines, and as prototype drawings for industrial design. However, few of the original watercolors, oil paintings, and pen-and-ink drawings—which the author spent years tracking down—have ever been exhibited before. Norman Brosterman, the author of Abrams' acclaimed Inventing Kindergarten, here triumphs once again—with another daring intellectual foray into art history and popular culture.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Published in conjunction with the Fall 2000 exhibition organized by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service, this volume contains color reproductions of original vintage artworks created to illustrate magazine stories or books. Focusing on the enthusiastic embrace of a particular 20th-century spirit, they form a visual archaeology of industrial and architectural design for the world to come, a historical exploration of the not yet known and the soon to arrive, and a stage for the visionary theater of vintage science fiction and futuristic speculation.
