you know what book is rad? MILLION DOLLAR VANDAL

Recommended Posts

yeah, but not even just chase stories. more just like...life stories.

 

Agreed. I love graffiti books and all but the lack of text always lets them down. The attention to detail with the two aka books i have made them worth my money and trouble though. I reallly want that desa book but with postage included (more that the price of the book) it's just too much. It sucks.

 

:(:(:(

You want text... read "Getting Up"... again. I don't even write anymore and that book is inspiring.

is there anyplace in NYC where i can go to just pick the book up. i don't have a credit card nor the patience to wait for it to come in the mail.

 

can we leave the obvious place (scrapyard) out of this.

I ordered it, but I don't expect it to reach for a while, since I'm international.

 

* Incidentally, I'm not one for graffiti books, but I figured, from what I've heard about Desa, that I might relate to some of his shit in the smallest degree. But whatever, a lot of people go through shit. I'll stab a starving African father in the back for his handout.

awww, how cute. abc has been checking the mail religiously the last two weeks, and even stole my mailbox key so he could do it, and now he's finally got it. like a 10 year old that just got their super nintendo circa 1992.

 

sidenote, he also got a free time magazine subscription. this issue my cousin is in it.

i was scrolling through the replies so i could say this. this book is ill. all the shit about "first dude to king interstate 90, or first dude tag Mountain whatever". im pretty sure its in print still, this book is it. the couple pictures in it i havent seen elsewhere either.

 

the shit about pray is it too

The funny thing about the Fuzz One book was that by the end of it, you've read it three times. I loved it.

 

Glad you guys liked the text on MDV. Louis Gropman, who did the text - this was his first serious piece of writing, and I thought he did a really good job.

ok cool thanks. my mdv should be arriving shortly and now i need to decide on the t-kid or that burning ny which from what ive seen is pretty tight as well.

 

i got the maclaim book recently and its cool. but thats if you like pretty pictures and a step to step guide on how to paint portraits/landscapes. a lot of useful info if youre into that stuff.

makes me want to go to germany.

burning NY is another great book.

 

Karla and Jim never ever dissapoint with any of their works.

The reissue of Broken Windows looks like its gonna be dope too.

 

Id highly recommend getting both the Tkid and BNY books

Mine arrived today. It's a beautiful thing. I guess I got one of the first 250, but not the first 100. What was the free gift?

 

I also have to say that the packaging was shit. My copy has battered corners too which is a real shame. Fourthehardway needs to take a look at Amazon's steez when it comes to shipping.

 

And for an amazing graffiti read hook yourself up with a copy of 'Getting Up'.
