We have an obsession with broken societies set in futuristic worlds, curious but terrifying new technologies and post-apocalyptic dusty wastelands where survivors grow more desperate every day. Dystopian worlds created in art, books, movies, TV shows and even music have always been hugely popular, stemming from such fantastic literature as 1984 and Day of the Triffids, but their popularity is, if possible, increasing. This exciting new book explores why we are so captivated by gritty, violent worlds and looks at how recent releases such as The Hunger Games have created an incredible snowball effect, encouraging new works and reminding us of the classics. Fantastic contemporary artwork by a range of great artists features alongside punchy text, bringing to life dystopian worlds full of cyberpunk fashion where the cameras are always watching...
