A Child's Garden of Hearses
A Child's Garden of Hearses was a one-off poetry zine created in March 2009 by Tim Train, a writer and zine-maker in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Poems were by Train, and most illustrations were by Baron von Harlot. It was A5 in size, made out of folded sheets of A4 paper. Early editions of the zine were sewn together, while later editions were stapled.
Poems included in the zine were mostly humorous. Many had appeared previously on Train's blog, including the centre poem, 'Epigrams of the Tax Office'. Others saw their first publication in the zine, including the concluding 8-page poem, 'The Bathroom Beowulf', which included a kind of pop-up toilet monster.
Train also publishes serial zine Badger's Dozen.
