In The Future, Montfort explores the work of writers, artists, inventors, and designers (mainly in Western culture) who imagined the future, including literary utopias from Plato’s Republic to Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s Herland; kitchens of the future and the vision behind them; the Futurama exhibit at the 1939 New York World’s Fair; and what led up to Tim Berners-Lee’s invention of the World Wide Web.
