About

Altered History is the design line created by illustrator/designer Abbey Manalli – aka, Captain Kit Kaboom; inspired by my love of history, and desire for travel and adventure in a world that never quite existed. This is a world of airships and trains, steam ships and submarines. Adventures are documented in hand-written journals, sepia colored photographs, and travel stickers on worn luggage.

My home base is in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and I have made a commitment to only have my designs produced in America.
