(8),vii-ix,(3),3-240,(4). 8vo, black cloth spine with blue paper covered boards, silver lettering to spine. "Part memoir, part commentary, and always sheer exuberance, these essays are an exploration and celebration of ideas and the possible and impossible worlds they will create -- if only we dare to dream. Bradbury reflects on art, literature, history, science fiction, and the design of our cities, malls, museums, amusement parks, concert hallsand hardware stores, and shows that the key to dreaming the future is in t he obvious: the metaphors -- be they people, books or toys -- that inspire our imagination. ALong with these heartening exhortations, Bradbury recallsacquaintances that ignited his own imagination -- the legendary Renaissanc e scholar Bernard Berenson, innovator and cartoonist Walt Disney, and Italian filmmaker Federico Fellini -- and evokes the places (the side streets ofParis, the piazzas and galleries of Italy, and his favorite museum in Lond on, Sir John Soane's Collection) that have stimulated and exhilarated him."- from the dustjacket.
