Reviews - What do customers think about The Future Was F.A.B.: The Art Of Mike Trim?

Fantastic and about time!  Feb 7, 2007
This book is well researched and written and has full colour photos throughout. For obvious reasons, it focuses heavily on his time working on the Gerry Anderson shows from Thunderbirds to UFO. Reading the book really gave me an appreciation for the work Mike Trim did and especially his contribution to the Anderson universe. Not only did he design many known vehicles, he was also a model builder and much more.

However, it is Mike's artwork that really stands out in this book. Over and over, he clearly went to great lengths to create realistic and believable vehicles, which went a long way to the general feel of the shows.

A nice easy read with lots of info. Like another reviewer mentioned, this goes well with the hard-to-find Derek Meddings book. If you like Gerry Anderson shows, you will love this book.
Great Book  Jan 15, 2007
Gerry Anderson's shows have spectacular vehicles and production values. Mike Trim's contributions to these shows are documented in this book, filled with rare color behind the scenes photos and his artwork. His design of the Mobile from UFO has always been my favorite vehicle. Along with Derek Medding's 21st Century Visions, a must have for fans of Anderson's shows. Give me more.
About time there is a book on mike Trim  Dec 21, 2006
This book is long over due - It is well written - Covers the involvement of Mike Trim with Gerry Anderson, etc. The book covers many facts of how mike Trim made the props, with many photos of high quality. I was not aware of Mikes involve with Gerry andersons projects until I read this book. If you are a fan of Gerry Anderson, and or his projects (which where many) Then this book is a perfect complaint to have.Anthony Taylor did a great job of research.
