Shoebox Train Wreck

Shoebox Train Wreck
by John Mantooth
ChiZine Publications • 2012

One of my favourite projects, as the text itself was inspiring. I created relief print headers for each short story, as well as additional imagery for frontis piece, endpapers, and foil stamp of the Limited Edition Hardcover.

Book available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, at finer book stores, and direct from the publisher.
