Book of Probes by Marshall McLuhan

Book Description

Inspired by McLuhan's bold perceptions, such as "obsolescence is the moment of superabundance" he called 'probes', that gleam today like hidden gems in his many books, in more than 200 speeches, in his classes, and most of all in the nearly 700 shorter writings that he published between 1945 and 1980 - Eric McLuhan, Marshall McLuhan's son, and William Kuhns have combed through all of his writings to extract and compile a complete collection of 'probes' which has become this - "The Book of Probes." Art Director and Designer David Carson presents McLuhan's work with refreshing new visual insight, and in doing so, has added his indelible mark to a body of work that is destined to be recommissioned and reinterpreted by countless generations to come. With commentaries by Eric McLuhan and Terrence Gordon, author of "Marshall McLuhan - Escape into Understanding."

Counterblast by Marshall McLuhan Counterblast, Hardback (April 2011)

In the same year that Wyndham Lewis published Self Condemned, Marshall McLuhan took inspiration from Lewiss journal BLAST and produced COUNTERBLAST, intended, like Self Condemned, to shake the city of Toronto out of its smugness, complacency, and spiritu
