Summary
  • "The Illustrated Man is a classic Bradbury--eighteen startling visions of humankind's destiny, unfolding across a canvas of decorated skin. In this phantasmagoric sideshow, living cities take their vengeance, technology awakens the most primal natural instincts, Martian invasions are foiled by the good life and the glad hand, and dreams are carried aloft in junkyard rockets."--Page 4 of cover
  • A wanderer meets a tattooed man whose images foretell the future, leaving a space to preview the destiny of the viewer

Summary
Eighteen imaginative science fiction stories--including the title story in which a tattooist's needle creates a canvas that captures humankind's destiny--range from the not-so-ordinary world of middle America to the vast reaches of outer space as they explore themes of love, madness, and death
