Language: English . Brand New Book. Omni was a jewel among popular science magazines of its era (1978-1998). Science Digest, Science News, Scientific America, and Discover may have all been selling well to armchair scientists, but Omni masterfully blended cutting edge science news and science fiction, flashy graphic design, a touch of sex, and the images of a generation of artists completely free and unburdened by the disciplines of the masters. Created by the legendary Bob Guccione, better known for founding Penthouse than perhaps any of the other facets of his inspired career in business, art, and literature, Guccione handpicked the artists and illustrators that contributed to the Omni legacy--they in turn created works ignited by passion and intellect, two of Guccione s principal ideals. The Mind s Eye: The Art of Omni is the very first publication to celebrate in stunning detail the exceptional science fiction imagery of this era in an oversized format. The Mind s Eye contains 185 images from contributing Omni artists including John Berkey, Chris Moore, H.R. Giger, Rafal Olbinski, Ralle, Tsuneo Sanda, Hajime Sorayama, Robert McCall, and Colin Hay among many more, along with quotes from artists, contributors, writers, and critics. Omni lived in a time well before the digital revolution. The images you see on these pages have taken years to track down and brought the editors in touch with many esteemed artists, amazing photographers and dusty storage lockers. Their quest is far from over; you ll notice an almost decade-long gap in the material, the contents of which were either lost or destroyed. Efforts to search throughout the universe for any images will continue and will be shared with the world at the all-things- Omni website, . Stay tuned. Collected in book form for the first time ever, the striking art from this extraordinary magazine will delight fans who remember seeing the work years ago and newcomers interested in the unique aesthetic of this genre s biggest artists. Omni was a magazine about the future. From 1978 to 1998 Omni blew minds by regularly featuring extensive QAs with some of the top scientists of the 20th century--E.O. Wilson, Francis Crick, Jonas Salk--tales of the paranormal, and some of the most important science fiction to ever see magazine publication: William Gibson s genre-defining stories Burning Chrome and Johnny Mnemonic, Orson Scott Card s Unaccompanied Sonata, novellas by Harlan Ellison and George R. R. Martin, Thanksgiving, a postapocalyptic tale by Joyce Carol Oates--even William S. Burroughs graced its pages. -- Vice magazine, Motherboard Omni is not a science magazine. It is a magazine about the future. Omni was sui generis. Although there were plenty of science magazines over the years. Omni was the first magazine to slant all its pieces toward the future. It was fun to read and gorgeous to look at. --Ben Bova, six-time Hugo award winner. N° de réf. du libraire AAT9781576876862
