Part tribute, part detective novel, this slim volume pays homage to Ed Ruscha's iconic first artist book.Whereas Ruscha listed the location of the stations in his photographs, these images are anonymous and mysterious. Dating from a similar time as Ruscha's (whose title is 55 years old this month), the photographs were found online, uploaded by a man seeking help in identifying them.
