Jetpack Dreams

French Flights of Fantasy

One of my favorite places to read about and look at cool things that shoulda been and still have not, and others that sorta were, is the blog Paleo-Future. Every time I take a peek there is something else fascinating and fantastically anachronistic being celebrated on the site. Take this circa 1800s poster in praise of forward-looking Frenchmen with hearts given over to dreams of the air. Baron Munchausen would no doubt feel very at home among these compelling and quixotic creations.
