    Both those books were great!

    the great thing about the don book was that he actually back then knew a lot mk,ore than many about cameras and films so alot of those photos are streets ahead of alot of other books.

    think it was great but he's always been pretty out there

    also got the seen book - not such a fan of this one.

    seemed a lot of clumsy bits and an english proofreader wouldn't have hurt.

    I agree, I would like to know what your top 12 are? You have a great collection, not just u.s. but all around. I have recently started getting more euro books, the quality is great, and as much as I like stateside graff, the books get stagnant and predictable. If I see one more shot of a rusted can on the tracks up close, or a black homeless person looking back pissed off with some out of focus graff in the background....well you get drift.

    Hey tomtom,
    yeah as soon as I posted that I realised it would be hard to pick.
    In fact I don't know here's a stab at it.

    In no order (numbered to keep track)

    1. Freight train graffiti
    2. Ruzd79
    3. All City writers Would definitely be in there.
    4. Blade - king of graff - blade tells a good story
    5. Overground 1 or 2 - interesting in depth writing on a few select writers.
    6. Train Track Memories - swedish book with photos all the way through it.
    At the back it has the story of each photo very personal -it's like sitting with a writer having them tell you the story
    7. The Art of Geting over
    8. The history of american graffiti (I think deserves a mention)
    9. Style master general ( dondi book)
    10. The Nasty Terrible Tkid 170
    11. Power of Style: Berlin Stylewriting
    12. Subway art (it's kind of got to be in there doesn't it?)

    other honourable mentions
    sabotage graffiti art on trains in europe
    Spraycan art
    Million dollar vandal
    Some the on the run books , Sabe, Sento, Part1, Ghost,Zebster
    free agents (dc graffiti)
    crack and shine ( london one)
    Amsetrdam graffiti the battle of Waterlooplein
    International top sprayer
    writers united
    KAOS VIM
    Kingsway
    copenhagen black books

    would love to get my hands on some of these I have the first graffiti art book from going to Europe in 1995 but idioticly didn't buy any more of them.

    Bought this on friday when it was released. looking forward to this for sure. it's pretty rare ( even the video for the book mentions it) for a writer to have their whole photo collection. but to have it over 30 years!

    Sick sick sick!
