Farbenzug (Color Train) – Artist Book by Anne Labovitz and William Gamble

Commuting by train between his office in Bielifeld, Germany and his home in Hanover, Germany, Bill Gamble shows us that the journey, not just the destination, is to be enjoyed. These Haiku poems capture the seasons and scenery that passed by the train window as Bill returned home on his nightly one-hour ride. Anne Labovitz later illustrated Bill’s work using colorful and evocative monoprints. Together, the words and art capture a world of changing wonder and beauty.
