A once treasured item that had the value of money is forever discarded once used. Here are some of my train tickets that I have been collecting for a while now and I have began to experiment if a sewing machine would actually stitch through the card. Knowing this worked I have taken the idea of Sashiko and used a sewing machine to create the line within the tickets.
This poster is made of one hundred and sixty UK National Rail tickets, collected by Philipp Sokolov - a frequent train commuter and a graphic design student from Central Saint Martin's College of Art and Design, London, over the course of two years. The price £1926.80 is a combined price of all tickets on the poster. Crazy!
