    THE BOOK OF TAGS attempts to analyze and also give voice to one of the most demonized yet pure means of expression within the graffiti world, the tag.
    The book presents the personal signatures of 150 writers coming from 20 different countries throughout the world. This selection includes some of the most influential tags belonging to pioneers in the graffiti world as well as others that represent innovative and experimental calligraphic styles.

    i dont like it.

    it seems really commercial an cliche in that they got handstyles from like people you see in every graffiti book, im not hating on that. Im just saying if its gonna be called a book of tags you should like analyze or at least represent the different hand styles that are unique to that particular area.

    just my 2 cents on that.

    *and since i was just looking at that little website and it didnt show much i could be wrong about the book, thats just my impression of what i thought the book was.

    looks cool for a flickthrough but maybe after looking at it once or twice it would loose its greatness
