A book that passed me by that was published back earlier in the year by Seigensha – Futuristic Illustrations for Kids of the Showa Era – Our 21st Century, is a book that presents illustrations from the 1950’s of what life would be like in the 21st century, compiled by Kenichi Hatsumi. The title of ‘Artificial Sun in a World Without Night’, alone is enough to pique my interest, I’m never too sure about reposting images from publisher’s websites without permission, so click over to Seigensha’s page on the book to take a preview look inside of this intriguing book. 272 color pages at 1260 Yen seems like incredible value.
Happy New Year! – thanks for reading in 2012 and all the best to you in 2013.
