Come fly with me

Two fantastic promotional brochures for General Motors' "Futurama II" exhibit at the 1964-65 New York World's Fair. This was the most popular exhibit, "a ride into tomorrow", imagining life in the year 2024 . Includes a map of New York City and fab space age illustrations. Two great pieces of mid-century ephemera, available from PaperHistory, here.


  1. The top one is fun with super cool futuristic building and then the fun yabadabadoo lettering who could possibly resist visiting. We were so ahead of our time what went wrong.

  2. This is fantastic - love the Futurama typee!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts so please leave me a message and brighten up my day. Merci!
