Hong Kong artist Chihoi adapts a short story by Taiwanese writer Hung Hung about a surreal train ride. With dream-like logic one of the characters asks, “Have you ever imagined the world outside the train?” The protagonist waits for someone, a woman perhaps, and observes with trepidation each time a new car is coupled to the train and the occupants spill out. Chihoi has done it again in this beautifully rendered pencilscape of a dream.

Other books by Chihoi: The Library

“Chihoi’s stories seamlessly bounce between crisp, arresting images and bleary, pulsing dream states. They perfectly replicate the feeling of being alive on a planet, inside of a head. His work is patient, precise and constantly surprising.”
Michael Deforge (author of Lose and Ant Colony)
