    the subway art book is what made me want to go beyond just tagging...
    i was in 9th grade and it was in our high school's library. then while looking at it i met many other writers.(it was a small school)
    yeah...but all that shit-->books,old graff mags, my old blackbooks have been lost in various moves...

    I'm on the look out for this one. I phoned my local library and they said they had two copies, so I thought I'll get down there and help myself. So I get there, and some fuckers had beat me to it - both copies 'missing'!

    'Subway Art' has got to be one of the best.
    'The Art of Getting Over' is a good one too, as is the 'Dondi' book.
    If you want a good read and a little bit of history check out 'Getting Up'.

    Getting Up rocks, a very interesting read - I'd still rate Subway Art as the best though, probably more because it's started a ridiculous amount of writers careers when it first came about. Including mine!

    Yeah, Getting Up is a good one. The tale of Lee and his whole train was captivating.....

    Art of Getting Over is another good one, as is Spray Can Art.........
