Consisting mostly of black and white sketches and marker renderings and weighing in at a massive 328 pages in a 14 x 11 format this volume is absolutely packed to the gills with some of the most notable futuristic industrial design ever to have been produced.
Tron, Aliens, Blade Runner, Short Circuit, 2010 Space Odyssey, Star Trek The Motion Picture and numerous other projects realized and not fill these pages along with countless drafts and rough sketches of many of the designs. Minimal text. This book and the set it comes in (Kronolog) are far from cheap. There's quite a few Syd Mead books out there, but if youre a fan of his and/or work in the industry, you better just buy the Kronolog set before it's completely financially out of reach. Otherwise jump on the bandwagon and just buy the Kronovecta alone. i believe they reprinted it in the early 90s and there are some reasonably priced copies floating around out there but probably not for long!
