MN Invents: Volume One

$ 17.95

MN Invents chronicles the colorful behind-the-scenes history of Minnesota's fertile culture of innovation and invention, in a collection of striking poster images designed by Replace, an international award-winning team of artists and writers specializing in brand design. Encompassing things like the stored-memory computer, the pop-up toaster, the retractable safety belt, the in-ear hearing aid, water skis, Spam©, and even a miniature helicopter piloted by mind control, the list of Minnesota-born inventions is long and gets longer every year. MN Invents is happy to introduce this cavalcade of ingenuity to the world

The people of this state have a long history of reluctance to accept the status quo. And when a challenge arises, history shows that, time and again, a Minnesotan meets that challenge with imagination and inventiveness. Whether the result is something as playful as a Nerf ball, as useful as a Post-it note, or as life-giving as open-heart surgery, this generous tradition is a well-earned source of pride and empowerment for all Minnesotans.
