Vintage futures

"Much like the visionary titles in the Vintage Future series hold a mirror to society today, the animated lenticular cover artworks reveal layers of complexity and beauty. And when correctly aligned, flip the nine books over to unlock a 1965 psychedelic vision from Italian artist Franco Grignani. When you take a trip into these revolutionary imagined futures, you’ll discover timeless storytelling that delights, challenges and excites."

The front covers work to a grid. The images within the grid all animate when you pass a lined acetate sheet across them. The design is based on the principle of a frame animation with the gap between each bar being an equal division of a single black bar. As the acetate is moved across the book cover, the next frame of the sequence in revealed creating the effect of a moving image. This piece of acetate is found lightly attached to the inside cover.

When the books are turned over and aligned correctly they reveal Centrifugal and Centripetal Structuring (1965) an artwork by Franco Grignani, one of the major designers of the Twentieth Century. The black and white lines complement the lenticular theme of the fronts.
