I have made it clear that I am a sucker for well packaged bits of merchandise and this is the epitomy for me. It is a book by Lauren Beukes called Moxyland, which seems to be a sci-fi futuristic adventure in Cape Town 10 years from now.
I have not read it, but check it out, it comes with a toy, how cool is that toy, I WANT that toy. The toy is made by some impoverished women in Montagu. I love Montagu. When I lived in Cape Town, Montagu was practically my second home. If you climb and you live/d in South Africa, you have probably heard of and been to Montagu. I have so many good memories of Montagu.
And, and it comes with its very own soundtrack. How cool is a book with a soundtrack? A homegrown soundtrack inspired by the book. I have been listening to it and it is very funky and gritty and dark. I likey. You can listen to it here.
Damnit, why do I have to live all the way over here in darkest Europe, I want the book and more importantly I want the awesome toy of awesomeness!
I really am every retailers dream.
I may ship it over via Kalahari, or I may wait til my next visit, but either way, I am not good at waiting for things I want. Want. it. now. Anyone from Saffaland feel like flying over to the UK to deliver it to my door? I will make you tea. I will throw in a digestive too.
