I've got a stack of graffiti books about 2 feet tall. The best ones for images are the Dondi book, Broken Windows, the Cope 2 book, Subway Art, Urban Discipline, and the Art of Getting Over. The best ones for information are Taking the Train, Broken Windows, The Art of Getting Over, and to a lesser extent Aerosol Kingdom.

Subway Graffiti: An aesthetic study of graffiti on the subway system of New York City, 1970-1978.

Author: Jack Stewart Ph. D.

Publisher: UMI Dissertation Services

Published: 1989

 

The first publication to approach subway graffiti from within the context of world history dating back to prehistoric times. Stewart documents subway art in earliest and most progressive stages in great detail. Book features interviews with many New York City legends such as TRACY 168, PHASE 2, WASP and LEE 163rd. (We highly recommend this book.)
