    ^this is my favorite graf book of all time...first one i ever saw..the photographs are just amazing and the the writers put the handstyle on each pictures and its printed with the actual ink that they used..it also so great filler pics of doors and wall throught the city...just the best book about NYC writers that i know of.

    MILLION DOLLAR VANDAL - The Life and Crimes of Desa MTA
    Published by AKA Projects, and designed by the ALSO KNOWN AS Crew, comes this all out assault to the senses. 'Million Dollar Vandal' is the uncensored story about the life and times of Brooklyn's prodigal son, Desa MTA. For the first time, we get inside Desa's head and his story gets officially told from the beginning. Exceptionally well written, this book chronicles in detail how Desa became the symbol of New York's war on graffiti during the 1990's, and details the repurcussions that came with being the NYC Vandal Squads public enemy number one. It's also an intimate look into his personal life, and reflects back on the milestones that formed the person he is today, including the death of VE (RIP), his near-fatal accident, and his tumultuous graffiti career being pursued by the Vandal Squad, and state prosecuters.

    'Million Dollar Vandal' is full of cinematic-type landscape photos, exclusive action shots, and personal portraits that range from trains to tunnels, platforms to rooftops, and from the streets of New York to the house he lives in. Beautifully photographed and also designed by ALSO KNOWN AS, this book has all the attention to detail and amazing printing techniques you've come to expect out of that crew including fluroescent and metallic inks, amazing packaging, and enough eye candy to keep this book on your coffe table permenantly. As a FOURTHEHARDWAY.com exclusive, the first 250 copies are individually signed, and the first 100 orders come with an un-announced bonus compliments of Desa. A definite must have!

    Hardcover, 8.25" x 10.25", 192 full-color pages, spot metallic and fluorescent inks, custom packaging. Individually Signed by Desa.
