The Future Is Now Volume Two is what you might call a sci-fi art book, a vision of a dystopian future created by Josan Gonzalez. You might call it that, but Josan himself puts it a bit differently. Here’s his description:
Welcome, my name is Josan, and as Chief of the Ministry of Information of Robo-City 16 and creator of the Robo-Citizen’s Guide to The Future, also known as The Future is Now, I will guide you through this process of adquisition that will, if completed successfully, provide you with the required documents to become a Robo-Citizen.
The Future is Now is an art book, a document that the Robo-President K3n3-DY has ordered everybody must have. It’s a compendium of the present future which will provide all the knowledge about Robo-City 16 and its dwellers. You will also explore exotic places outside the Robotic Union of Europe, like The Nation of the Sands, Harajuku Walled Island or the Independent States of Scrapland.
The above text comes from the project’s Kickstarter page, but again, describing it in terms of Kickstarter might be misleading. Having raised $108,548 of its $19,755 goal, it’s already funded about five and a half times over, with five days left in the campaign. This is a done deal, although contributions are still being accepted, and there’s still swag to be had and stretch goals to be met.
Whatever it is, the artwork is beautiful, and deserves to be seen. Here are preview images Josan shared with us; you can also learn more about this and his other projects at fsix.es.
