From the publisher

Extinct gathers together the work of an exceptional range of artists, curators, architects, critics and academics, including Barry Bergdoll, Gillian Darley, Tacita Dean, David Edgerton, Hal Foster, Catherine Slessor, Deyan Sudjic and Richard Wentworth. In 85 illustrated essays, contributors nominate ‘extinct’ objects and address them in a series of short, vivid, sometimes personal essays, speaking of not only obsolete technologies, but other ways of thinking, making and interacting with the world. Extinct is filled with curious, half-remembered objects, each one evoking a future that never came to pass.
