Dark Roasted Blend has posted another of their “retro-future” illustration selections, this one featuring wonderfully over-the-top Japanese illustrations for magazines, toy and model boxes and advertisements from the 1930’s through the 1960’s.
Most of the images are linked to larger versions.
They’ve also tossed in a 1980’s advertisement for Canon that features Katsuhiro Otomo’s characters from Akira using the latest camera while flying on their jet scooter (images above, bottom).
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go fly my bubble-topped hovercar down a climate-controlled jetway to an appointment in a domed city.

LOL. I have seen SOME of these as the original covers of – Popular Mechanics. GREAT stuff!
I forgot to mention – they’re the second from the top and second from the bottom.
