ah..

 

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...

don't sleep kiddies.

 

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.........

I've got subway art and the art of getting over. Both of those are bad ass. I'll probably get Dondi next.

I thought Futura's book was interesting as well.

 

I bet if Barnes and Noble didn't have a copy on hand you could get them to order a one....not sure whats required to order one.

The amazing thing to me about Faith of Graffiti is that Norman Mailer absolutely nailed it, he wrote just an amazing piece about graffiti, probably still the best ever. Someone with time on their hands should type it out and put it on line.
