Norman Bel Geddes (1893-1958) was a Broadway stage designer turned industrial designer. During much of his life, his ideas stretched beyond the vision of most people. He encountered a lot of apprehension toward his innovative ideas, many of which never left the drawing board. His book Horizons showcased a series of futuristic designs for buildings and transportation systems utilizing the streamlined style of the modern industrial world. He described and illustrated projects like a fully streamlined ocean liner and a huge passenger airplane with public lounges, promenade decks (in the wings). 

Back cover slightly faded and rubbed, book block slightly loose, but still a good copy.
