For this book, I wanted to express my love for trains and train travel. I wanted to tell people how I view train travel through a journey which I took and why they should also travel by train more often too. It’s the small details that really make it enjoyable. Through experimentation with riso printing and development on Illustrator and InDesign, I developed the book with a journey in mind, using an orange line to demonstrate the journey. I decided to go for a familiar style which everyone knows well.
Despite the negative sides of high cost or train strikes, I still want to reflect on the positive sides of train travel and some of the fun experiences I have had from station to station. Each double page showing every station I stopped at along the journey. And based on the title, it was 8 stops! I decided to take pictures with my phone to give it a more touristy feel or to show the movement of the train itself as I travelled along.
