How the people of 1912 envisioned 2012

December 19, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Check out this neat article published in the Paleofuture blog of the Smithsonian website. The article takes a look at future-themed illustrated cards that were produced by the Norgeu family of printers. The cards were printed for the French chocolate company Lombart and were titled “En l’an 2012″ which translates to “in the year 2012.” They were intended to illustrate how the technology of 2012 would improve the sales of Lombart chocolate. It’s neat to see illustrations of the cards and also see what earlier generations thought 2012 might be like!
