“All Known Metal Bands” book – spread

Many people have pointed out that this book was obsolete immediately, and wondered why someone would have a list like this printed when you could simply consult lists on the internet for the most complete, up-to-date info. Part of the playful (in a non-ironic way) nature of this object is that it is kind of like a tomb of information, a snapshot, a monument to the human tendency to wrap our arms around the impossible and solidify the ever-shifting. Also, as a document that could only be assembled in a reasonable amount of time in the internet age, it is a successful attempt to limit information and to separate it from hyperlinks. This book has one kind of information only, and I find that very liberating as a reader, and respectful of a reader’s attention.
