Evolution of Fantastical Items

This is a collecetion of fantasy items and their evolution. From the Necronomicon to the Hovercrafts. 

The evolution of fantasy items in novels and short stories is a correlation to what is happening at those times in society. Every gneration has important societal events that take place that shape the writing styles and imaginations of those writing in that generation. The 20's, 50's, 60's, and 2000's are presented in this exhibit. These novels are also a collection of works that were considered "controversial" for their time.  Many of the novels I have chosen have been a source of contention in society and have caused feuds amongst people.  

This exhibit eplores these items starting in the 1950's and evolving into present day. The items in the exhibit are all selected specificaly for this exhibit, and demonstrate some kind of societal change/evolution from a previous generation. These are important items to include in a collection of fantastical items as they are all pieces from fantasy novels that one may wish to obtain. These items caught my attention while reading and as such have merited a place in this exhibit. 

Some works covered in this exhibit are: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Hunger Games, Harry Potter (1-7), etc.
