Robots: Machines in Man’s Image (1985) by Isaac Asimov and Karen A. Frenkel has arrived.
If you’re into this kind of thing…this is SUCH a cool book! It’s a pleasure to page through it as it’s packed full of illustrations and photos. It covers everything robots: the origins of robots, robots in pop culture and science fiction, industrial robots, actual research and tech, and speculation on the future of robots. It was published in 1985, so part of the fun of this book is looking at these ideas through the lens of that time.
It comes covered in a clear protective book jacket – our price is $8.00.
