This Town Has Been Mapped A Catalog of Hobo Sign Language
Once again the Nomadic Fungi Institute has teamed up with the White Rock Zine Machine.
This Town Has Been Mapped is an important handbook of hobo signs pulled from the journals of Dr. Graybones. These signs are how transient people who travel by rail communicate. These signs tell you where to go for good food, good pay for day labor, and places to avoid. Dr. Graybones traveled the rails from 1944 -1957 keeping a detailed catalog of the hobo sign language making this handbook an invaluable tool for anyone thinking about a live on the rails.
This valuable handbook is available for a limited time at Ro2 Art in Dallas Texas.
