New Arrival – ROBOTS

 

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.

Meet the new dude on the block

This purposeful fellow is named “Robot” according to Paige Frazee, his creator. He seems to be striding toward the Book Shop, no doubt to gear-up with reading material, cool decor and gifts to enhance his rock.
