GM Future explores some of the possibilities of genetically modifying nature on the cusp of the millennium. The book offers a series of examples from slow growing grass, to specially bred plants, and some of the consequences of these experiments. Texts are interspersed with pages collected from old gardening books, and therefore; each book is a unique copy within the edition, as no two collected pages are the same.
