About the Author

CHRIS WILD, a former museum curator is a blogger and creator of Retronaut, a 'time machine' that allows people to access millions of pieces of historical content including videos, pictures, music and text from public and private archives. It is a passport into history where people can pick their own entry point (be it people, places or objects) and take a fascinating, inter-connected journey back in time.

Reviews

"With every page comes a surprise; this terrific collection never ceases to entertain." --Publishers Weekly, starred review "A way-back machine of great appeal to anyone who is interested in history, imagery, or art. In other words, just about everyone." --Library Journal "The legacy of Retronaut will be how it has educated through amazement--in a tasteful and entertaining manner." --San Francisco Book Review, 5/5 stars "In this remarkable assemblage of photos, artefacts and vintage advertisements, [Wild] takes us on a magical tour of the past." --Daily Mail "This is as cool a photography book as you're ever likely to come across." --Buffalo News "These photos of the past are strange, wonderful and weird." --The Fresno Bee "This book transcends time and there is something for everyone." --Mixed Media Reviews "Think of the book as a compilation of the most delightful and astonishing pictures from the massive photo album of our shared worldwide cultural heritage." --BookTrib.com
