Steel Couture – Syd Mead – Futurist: Sentinel (Dragon’s Dream, 1979)
My casual approach to bargain hunting sometimes pays off. I rarely go to auctions and car boot sales, relying more on a nose for likely charity shops. While some are now 'ebay-ed' to death, Oxfam being a prime example, there remain a few 'old school' establishments that seem to care little about squeezing the max out of their supporters' donations. Good for the punter like me, but bad for the cause.I knew little about Syd Mead until I bought this book; futuristic imaginings by an artist whose style has graced movies like Bladerunner, Tron, and Aliens. Here's a gallery of some of the contents that someone has posted on flickr. Groovy stuff.
