MONIKERS, PRINTS, AND SIGN-INS FROM THE NATIONAL HOBO CONVENTION @ BRITT (IA) - ADAM VOID
In his fourth installment of obscure, sight specific documentations of graffiti culture snapshots, Adam Void serves up 30+ years of hobo graffiti from the site of the National Hobo Convention in Britt, Iowa. The convention is a world unto itself, with kings, queens, freaks, and misfits all connected to the American tradition of riding trains without permission. Unique road names are acquired along with miles and experience. Those names are transferred over onto objects to say that the owners exist and will remain after their bodies travel on.
It's a book! So many names. Graffers might know Deuce Seven, Old Crow, The Agency. Brakeshoe, and others. But, this is so much more than a moniker or freight tagger zine. Monikers, Prints, & Sign-Ins has the spirit and touch of hundreds of hobos, the gentlemen (and women) of the rails and the 120+ years of tradition held in the beautiful quaint town of Britt, Iowa. May their names live on, and may new ones keep riding for freedom.
