Mostly True: The West's Most Popular Hobo Graffiti Magazine

Regular price £14.99

Tax included.

As a result of a 25 year obsession with American hobo and railworker folklore, Bill Daniel presents a collection of art, photography, interviews and stories about hobo graffiti.

This revised, 3rd edition contains even more railroad boxcar graffiti and gives a fascinating insight into train-hopping vagabond culture.

Filled with railroad nostalgia, freight-riding stories, historical oddities and interviews with the graffiti artists themselves, this unique zine-turned-book seeks to acquaint the curious with the boxcar riders and taggers. The true meaning behind the art is explained.

Bill Daniel is a filmmaker whose documentary on the history of hobo graffiti, Who Is Bozo Texino?, was screened at more than 350 venues worldwide. He has exhibited film, photography, and installation work in several museums, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the New Museum in New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, and the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis.
