From the executive producer of the Year-Round Metal Enjoyment film comes the hardcover book, The Lines Don’t Lie. The first of its kind to solely showcase the contemporary freight-train graffiti subculture photographed along the rail lines of New England, the book is also packed with trackside productions, missions in nearby tunnels, and life (and death) at the gravel's edge. It is an unbiased look at not only who is the "most up", but who is out there attempting this at all. Archival sections include contributions from Sept, Spek, and Learn. Among the hundreds of photographs are wisdoms and witticisms from twenty-five graffiti writers, along with insights from railworkers, and a foreword by legendary writer, Ichabod.
All photographs (archives being the exception) were made by Nicholas Gervin with his Fujifilm camera. Printed in the U.S.A and hand-bound by the artist, the first run of The Lines Don't Lie will be released as a limited edition of three hundred copies. Each will contain one hundred ninety pages of 80 lb. gloss stock in a silver foil-stamped, leatherette cover.
