This is the companion bk to Daniel's movie "Who is Bozo Texino?" - a documentary about train graffiti. The bk includes the stuff that didn't make it into the movie &, probably, has some overlap. The layout, apparently created by Rich McIssac, Gary Fogelson, Phil Lubliner, & Sam Friedman, cd hardly be better. Framed as the "April 1908 Vol. 19, No. 7" issue of "The West's Most Popular Hobo Graffit Magazine", this has a motley plethora of interesting stuff like hobo symbols, interviews w/ train car graffitists, old & new relevant ads, &, of course, fotos of the graffiti itself. There're even a few oblique references to neoism such as Colossus of Roads' Monty Cantsin graffiti & a letter from Dave Zack. All in all, a thorough bk lovingly assembled.
