More details

The sequence of nearly 700 pages creates, as its title suggests, an artistic vision of the future. The novel by H.G. Wells, to which the title refers, envisioned events up to the twenty-second century and served both as a suprisingly accurate prophecy and a reflection of the author's own time.The book was a touchstone for Stanley Kubrick's masterpiece, the film 2001:A Space Odyssey (1968), in which a great monolith stands as an iconic but enigmatic sculptural presence. This new book opens with an enormous standing, monolithic styrofoam sculpture of a video cassette of 2001.
