Le Livre Mondial des Inventions

This book was published in 1991, for the ten year anniversary of the 1980 edition. It eventually found itself in a Paris thrift store, where I purchased it in 2014, and now it is here, for you, on the Internet in 2020. As due diligence in appeasing the Tumblr gods and serving the inspo chasm of our simulation with unfairly forgotten print ephemera—here are some highlights from a 362-page catalog of inventions that has been shelved for far too long.

Il y a dix ans, déjà, paraissait la première édition, faisant le point sur l‘histoire des inventions, jetant un premier regard sur celles qui allaient marquer les années 1980.
