Visual futurism The influence of Syd Mead on film design and on the visions of SF artists around the world can’t be understated. Rooted in a real-world/ lived-in feel his vehicles and buildings have made so many movies seem both possible and plausible. This collection is a beautiful overview of his work over the years and, if I’m honest, the book could’ve been twice the number of pages and I would still have wanted more.Absolutely essential for futurists everywhere.

Good looking Lots of good images in a very well made and printed book.Not much to read however.Other reviews mention heavy focus on BR82.Which represents a very large part of the book.Not a cash in but not enough from other films.

Great Book! An awesome book into the mind of Syd Mead, a great gift for anyone who loves sci fi or is familiar with his work.I bought this book for my girlfriend who loves the Bladerunner movies, so if you wanted to pair this with something I would say get the art book for those movies. I believe the new art book is called ‘The Art and Soul of Bladerunner’.
