Railroad Town by Jim Flora
Jim Flora Art have produced some beautiful new limited edition relief prints, from an old but well-preserved 1951 Flora woodcut.

Railroad Town was carved while Flora lived in Mexico. It’s a manic panorama, chock with feverish tension and crammed with sinister figures wedged together like rune-shaped brickwork. It’s one of Flora’s definitive masterpieces. Every quirk and every nuance is evident: music, architecture, dogs, and trains; wild contours and interlocking figures; degenerate behavior, multi-tiered cutaways, and unfathomable anatomy. It’s a graphic traffic jam. As Flora once confessed, “I could never stand a static space.”
