Mostly True: The Story of Bozo Texino


Out of stock


By Bill Daniel

From the director of the underground documentary film Who Is Bozo Texino? comes 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, interview 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.

About the Author
Texas-born, San Francisco exile, and confirmed tramp, Bill Daniel continues to experiment with survivalism and bricolage in his attempts to record and report on the various social margins he often finds himself in. Working without an art or film school education, he endeavors to make work that connects with an outsider audience. His work began in 1980 as he participated in and photo documented the blossoming punk rock scene in Austin, Texas. Since then his subcultural documentary subjects have included bicycle messengers, radical environmentalists, hobo graffiti artists, swap meet guitar players, rural drag racers, and “water squatters”–outlaw anchored live-aboards.
