RETROFUTURE - IMAGES FROM THE FUTURE THAT NEVER WAS

ByLuca Oleastri

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
The "Retrofuture" is a total vision of the future as seen through the eyes of the past, often a utopian society characterized by high technology (relative to the base time), unusual or exaggerated artistic, architectural and fashion styles, and an abundance of consumer goods; its spirit of optimism and embracing of the status-quo is a contrast with cyberpunk, although in many cases the utopianism is presented in an intentionally ironic or camp light. This book is a nostalgic compilation of hundreds images taken from divulgation books and magazines from the '20 to the '70.
