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, while the front cover design was by Martin Kingsley. The zine 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 were mostly humorous, with many of them appearing previously on Train's blog. 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.
