Future Shock is a novel written by Alvin Toffler in 1970. It explores the concept of "future shock," or the overwhelming sense of disorientation and loss that individuals can experience when faced with rapid technological and societal change.
The letterforms on the book cover most likely use Amelia, a futuristic typeface designed by Stanley Davis in 1965. However, the typeface appears more condensed and angular. In 2012, Ray Larabie build Permanence which can be used to reproduce the title lettering.
