|Malc Dow's Patternotion page|
Well we just got that phone call to tell us that it neither sunk nor swam but FLEW and is still flying high!
This journey started when I sent a copy of FreedBook to the artist Malc Dow. He was busy preparing for Sampson Low Ltd's new book, Patternotion, and needed some pointers on style and format. A copy wound its way to Scotland and ended up on Malc's coffee table. Well after reading it several times over he embraced the spirit of the FreedBook and set it free.
Now Malc is a compassionate kind of guy and knew the FreedBook needed some company, sustenance and love. So he left it in 'The most salubrious place in town for free fast broadband', or to you and me the coffee shop at Perth Library. Just as he said his goodbye to FreedBook he wrote his number in the front page as a parting gift.
Of course Malc forgot all about it and got on with his life.
"I picked up this book on my way to Dubai. So I maybe just leave in the book shelf at Dubai airport - I am in transit there... or shall I leave it here in the magazine rack here on the plane... it's business class..."
So Malc said.... "Leave it in the bookshelf!! For goodness sake it or will end in the bin otherwise!"
So that's what our Mystery Caller did....and is it still there? Well who knows.
But what I do know is, even if its on a continent far far away, then its got there in style!
