Retronaut: The Photographic Time Machine

Based on the widely popular blog that started as a side project in a basement, Retronaut reveals strange yet enlightening photographs from the past that somehow seem to depict another version of now. Martha Stewart as a fashion model, Kim Jong II in a bumper car, and Ronald Reagan modeling for a sculpture class - this quirky page-turner enriched with author Chris Wild's unique wit and oddball knowledge is a must-have for collectors of the unusual. Wild, a former museum archivist, has revolutionized the way we think of dusty photos - turning them into a sensation that has taken the Internet by surprise. He has selected over 300 of the best photographs from the site's most visited eras and themes, mashing up Victoriana with vintage advertising from the '60s and '70s and unearthing rare snapshots of evil dictators taking vacations. Page by page, this unconventional, thought-provoking photographic time machine will change what you think you know about history.

Chris Wild

Chris Wild aka The Retronaut is the creator of the blog "How to be a Retronaut". In its review of How to be a Retronaut, the Guardian newspaper said: "Rather than nostalgia or folly, the aim is enlightenment, wonder and the pleasure of weirdness".[1]

In March 2010, Wild was interviewed for BBC Radio 5 Live's Outriders. As the show's presenter Jamillah Knowles said: "How to be a Retronaut plays with our understanding of historical documents, encounters and time itself."

In April 2010, How to be a Retronaut was made "Blog of the Month"by TheGoodWebGuide.[2]

In June 2010, Wild was Guest Editor for TheGoodWebGuide.[3]

Wild is a speaker at the TEDGlobal 2010 conference. According to his official TED biography, Wild defines a "retronaut" as "someone who goes back in time using just perception".[4]
