MN Invents

MN Invents is the first in a series of books which showcase the wonderful history of Minnesota’s culture of innovation and invention. Ranging from Rollerblades, Twister, the pop-up toaster, submarines and of course Spam.

The book was written and designed by Replace, a international award-winning team of artists + writers that specialize in brand design in Minneapolis. The graphic art is amazing, and you can order posters of your favorite invention as well as the book here
