Metrobolist7 bookartobject

Blog post at this site May 30 2018  opening Metrobolist 7

Metrobolist7 will explain, in a form of imaginative storytelling [...] how the tale might conceivably end up as parallel alterities—fantasy and actualised document.    

And so it has turned out to be. Veer Books (London) in association with visual associations has published limited bookartobject Metrobolist 7 dedicated to the memory of my old friend and young days collaborator David Bowie.

Metrobolist 7 contains Metrobolist: Five Chapters (homebakedbooks 2014-2015) noted on earlier blog postings at this site with cover images and descriptive chapter précis. This bookartobject is filled with newer text including fantasy Metrobolist6 and more art — completing the big Metrobolist picture. Although actualized, catalogued and released as Metrobolist 6, November 2020 (Social Reality Earthtime) as an official 50th anniversary remix on Parlophone, loss of original artworks: and sadly the loss of David himself in 2016, followed by that big elephant man in the laboratory —  severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 — lessened the chances a re-released The Man Who Sold the World would see light of day.

Between 2015 and early 2020 with possibility a documented Metrobolist  would never happen, the present writer designed an imaginary album. 

A fictional Metrobolist 6.
