"The Law of Accelerated Returns" (Ray Kurzweil, 2001) says that technological change is exponential (contrary to the common-sense “intuitive linear” view).

All these misguided predictions, however, have brought great ideas and a rich imaginary in the fields of thought, cinema, literature or music. All these contradictions are the plot and conceptual axis of the essay book Amazing Futures.
To translate this to a graphic language, the design pursues the misunderstanding and error through a completely classical graphic base (page layout following the golden ratio, justified texts, classic and easy-to-read serif typefaces ...) that is constantly broken. This rupture is consolidated on the cover where no element (title, sub-title, spine...) appears where it should be so at first sight, inconvenience the reader, like the uncertain future.
