It’s a good day for Flickr sets

The one in the post below is still my fave, but this one’s pretty good, too.

Author Douglas Coupland (who also happens to be one of my favorite writers) has taken the iconic Penguin book cover design and created a series of book covers to explain the year 2010 to folks in 1935.

Speaking to the Past is a little bit depressing. I’m not sure I’d actually want to show it to people in 1935. But it’s definitely interesting, and I did get a bit of a chuckle out of numbers 16 and 32.

Hmmmm. 1935 is not way before my time. I still think of Orwell’s 1984 as futuristic even though most of the book’s grim predictions have quietly come to pass. Big Brother, distortion of past and current events, mood altering drugs.
