Vintage Futures

Brave-New-World

Vintage has just republished a fantastic set of dystopian and futuristic paperback fiction in a series titles “Vintage Futures”. Each of the books includes an attached sheet of acetate that can be used to “animate” the cover image.

The nine book covers feature highly stylized lenticular illustrations that suit the sci-fi nature of the series. When the covers of each book are aligned together they form a 1965 artwork by Italian artist and designer Franco Grignani called “Centifugal and Centripedal Structure”.
