Vintage First Edition 1979 The Usborne Book of the Future – A Trip in Time to the Year 2000 and Beyond – Hardback – 0000508
The future is here! If you grew up in the 1970’s and 1980’s then you will remember this book! “The Usborne Book of the Future – A trip in time to the year 2000 and beyond”. This seriously cool educational and speculative look at the future from the perspective of the late 1970’s, was written around the time of the original Star Wars and you can clearly see the influence of the science of the day on the movies and TV Shows. Remember Space 1999?
This book is packed with amazing colour hand-drawn illustrations and brilliant science fact and many aspects of which would be seen now as science fiction. We have come along way but I don’t see the robotic butlers or space trips to the moon as being “an everyday affair”. We are close though,
This is a rare book, and even rarer in this condition. Externally, this book is in very good condition for a used book over 30 years old – there is some bumping to the corners and very minor discolouration marks to the cover. Internally, the condition is also excellent with bright and clean pages. The spine has come loose but all the pages are attached and intact. Please see the photos.
There are some great facts and illustrations including a fabulous insight to the 2020 Olympic Games with the 14 meter Lunar High Jump as an event!
A great book of science fiction, science fact, nostalgia and great images!More Information…
