The Unreal, Silver-Plated Book

El Libro plateado y real
If the metaphor of the journey has long been used to describe history, what would it mean to insist that history is a journey taken on foot, such that each stop at a monument to a statesman or war hero also became the opportunity to wander off the given path? This is the implicit challenge posed to our notions of history by the Argentine artist Eduardo Molinari in his book The Unreal, Silver-Plated Book / El Libro Plateado y Real.1 The Unreal Book is among a collection of books Molinari has authored under the aegis of El Archivo Caminante (The Walking Archive).
