Book Books Prophets of Zoom Book Prophets of Zoom Book 1 - Published 2007. An unusual, but fascinating book called Prophets of Zoom, it reproduces the front and back of each card in Mitchell's 1936 series of fifty The World of Tomorrow, opposite which is pictured a modern equivalent – and it's surprising how many of the predictions have become true! From author Alfredo Marcantonio's introduction, we learn that the card set was inspired by a book called 'The World of Tomorrow' and drew upon images from contemporary films, in particular Alexanda Korda's 'Things to Come', as well as inventions then at the cutting edge of technology. The individual predictions range from the amazing to the amusing and together they paint a unique picture of the world we life in now, as pre-war Britain imagined it would be. To take just one example. The very first card informs us that 'coal-mines and oil-wells will not last forever. We shall have to gain the energy we need, not from fuel, but from the inexhaustible forces of nature', and the set forecasts wind turbines, atomic energy and solar motors as being the power sources of the future. From space travel and giant television screens, robots and bullet trains, to London's skyscraper skyline, this is highly entertaining stuff.

Book Books The First World War on Cigarette and Trade Cards by Dr Cyril Mazansky Book The First World War on Cigarette and Trade Cards by Dr Cyril Mazansky Book 1 - Published in 2015. What a wonderful advertisement for our hobby! “The First World War on Cigarette and Trade Cards” is a book illustrated with 941 cards mostly issued at the time and including many rarities. This is no mere picture book. It is an authoritative history of the war written by an expert on the subject employing cards from a collection built up over a period of more than thirty years. The result is a richly illustrated descriptive tapestry of this great conflict, using cards and silks to great effect both as a source of information and also as a means of showing how events, personalities and various aspects of the war were presented to the public at the time. The book is split into chapters dealing with particular topics such as Military Leaders, Armaments, War Scenes, Army Life, VC Heroes and The Home Front, plus a special section on the History of Card Collecting. The author, Dr. Cyril Mazansky, will be familiar to readers of Card Collectors News magazine as he has contributed many articles. We cannot recommend this book too highly. It is a marvellous production, well researched, well written in a style which involves the reader in “The War to End All Wars”, impeccably illustrated with a magnificent array of cards.
