"Mostly True" by Bill Daniel
FOD-02: "Mostly True" by Bill Daniel. Book. 2nd Edition, 168 pgs. Microcosm Publishing.
A documentary about modern day hoboes, rail workers and a forgotten outsider subculture by photographer/filmmaker Bill Daniel. A rollicking rail zine of boxcar graffiti and obscure railroad nostalgia - the result of a 25 year obsession with hobo and railworker folklore. Freight riding stories, interviews with hoboes and boxcar artists, historical oddities and tons of photos of modern day boxcar tags are all presented in the guise of a vintage rail fanzine. Designed by Gary Fogelson, Phil Lubliner and Rich McIsaac with Illustrations by Sam Friedman.
