"Carouschka's Tickets" is a design object, an artist's book, and a catalogue of the ultimate emphemera of 30 years worth of travel. It reproduces over 1600 tickets from international airlines to intracity buses collected by the Swedish designer and architect Carouschka Strejffert which together present a portrait of contemporary migration: of people across borders, and of commuters across town, while at the same time celebrating the graphic design of travel. Remarkably designed in a large-format with French folds, this book is printed beautifully, accurately conveying the feel and texture of each ticket. "Carouschka's Ticket" is a singular project by a unique artist that speaks to the overwhelming prevelance of travel in our world, and the signifying power of graphic design in contemporary culture.

Carouschka's Tickets is at once a museum of objects, a record of movement, a catalog of graphic form and typography, and a concentrated experience of travel. Hundreds of plane tickets, train tickets, airline baggage tags, bus transfers, taxicab receipts, parking permits, and other bits of travel ephemera from 70 countries are displayed against rich fields of color. Travelers' thoughts and overheard comments are translated and interspersed between the tickets alongside their original-language versions, comments that range from the banal ("tea?") to the personal ("his wife is bound to notice something soon") to the profound ("alas, my spirit, your wanderings have been my home in this life"). This beautifully designed, printed, and bound volume makes real not only the feelings of travel but also of life itself, in subtle, quiet, and brilliant ways. With each page, the book is more an art object, rather than a gathering of art objects, a moving narrative masquerading as a catalog of tickets. --Juliette Cezzar
