The Airship is a science fiction story and first in a trilogy of planned letterpress graphic novels. In it, the author seeks to draw a literary analogy between the dichotomy of using modern day digital design tools to create works that are produced on vintage analog equipment. In this story, set in a fictional past, one of the characters is transported to another dimension in space and time. His attempts to communicate across this gulf are indecipherable without access to a smartphone. The reader must also bridge the gap from the era of the story and the equipment used to produce it in order to fully experience the book.
