Production Narrative

by C. Meador

Forthcoming.

Critical Analysis

by E. Rettberg

Design Features

typographic: Text is scarce in the volume, so the various retro-typography on the actual railroad passes becomes the main typographic element of the book.

imagery: The repetition of various railroad passes suggests a statis within the field of transportation.

graphical: The sheer consistency of each page's graphic design enforces a kind of documentary monotony.
