I've been creating zines in the Ghost Towns of Alberta series to show the historical rise and fall of once-prosperous communities throughout the province of Alberta, along with illustrations and even a map you can use to plan your own adventure to see these gems of history.

This zine focuses on communities along the historic Alberta Coal Branch, a spur line of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway along the Eastern Slopes of the mighty Canadian Rockies. This rail line transformed rough work camps into thriving communities where families lived and great coal seams were mined to satisfy a seemingly insatiable hunger for the energy source they produced. But what happened to these once-prosperous mines and communities in order to end up lost to time?

The first in this series of zines, Ghost Towns of Southern Alberta Along the Historic Red Coat Trail, was shortlisted for a 2023 Broken Pencil Magazine Zine Award for the category "Best Info Zine".

This is the physical version of the zine. The zine is printed onto 28# bright white paper and packaged in an envelope printed with extra artwork and closed with a removable label. The complete packaged zine will be shipped inside a separate envelope for protection while in transit.
