Photo Diary: Learn Your Bay Area Literature on BART


Photo by Jeremy Anderson

Rider Jeremy Anderson noticed this new poster at Glen Park BART station and dropped it in our Flickr pool. It’s a part of the poster series by Owen Smith commissioned by BART.

The series “Literary Journeys” depicts BART riders immersed in books by Dashiell Hammett, Jack London and Amy Tan, with scenes from the books coming to life in their imaginations.

There are 60 posters in all, placed in stations throughout the BART system, so there’s a good chance that you might see one of these surreal posters on your commute. Do you know the book referenced by the poster Jeremy saw?
