    Oh No doubt for those that were there it's great but considering 99.9% of the audience the book is trying to sell to weren't there and don't know about the crew it is consideration that could have been thought about more.


    I can tell the intentions were good. which is such a shame because I had such high hopes for it.
    Once again my opinion is pretty solitary I suspect.

    respect for them putting it out it is a lot of work.

    Steel Wheels 1986 - 1997 covers graffiti on the subway system of New York City during its final years of existence: 1986 - 1989. Followed by the earliest stages of aerosol graffiti on North American freight trains. What sets Steel Wheels apart from many other books on the subject is it is completely unbiased. None of the photos were solicited or acquired. Full of insightful text and brilliant, rare photographs Steel Wheels captures this 11 year span and gives validity to this period as one of the most important periods in the history of graffiti on trains in America. It is between these years that Writing in New York City began to reach outside of its boarders and spread to the world. All photographs were shot, in transit, by the author Cole T. Only. 120 pages.

    it's okay but definitely not for the text - there isn't much in english
    covers the train scene since 1987 there are definitely a few nice pieces there
