MILLION DOLLAR VANDAL - The Life and Crimes of Desa MTA

Published by AKA Projects, and designed by the ALSO KNOWN AS Crew, comes this all out assault to the senses. 'Million Dollar Vandal' is the uncensored story about the life and times of Brooklyn's prodigal son, Desa MTA. For the first time, we get inside Desa's head and his story gets officially told from the beginning. Exceptionally well written, this book chronicles in detail how Desa became the symbol of New York's war on graffiti during the 1990's, and details the repurcussions that came with being the NYC Vandal Squads public enemy number one. It's also an intimate look into his personal life, and reflects back on the milestones that formed the person he is today, including the death of VE (RIP), his near-fatal accident, and his tumultuous graffiti career being pursued by the Vandal Squad, and state prosecuters.

 

'Million Dollar Vandal' is full of cinematic-type landscape photos, exclusive action shots, and personal portraits that range from trains to tunnels, platforms to rooftops, and from the streets of New York to the house he lives in. Beautifully photographed and also designed by ALSO KNOWN AS, this book has all the attention to detail and amazing printing techniques you've come to expect out of that crew including fluroescent and metallic inks, amazing packaging, and enough eye candy to keep this book on your coffe table permenantly. As a FOURTHEHARDWAY.com exclusive, the first 250 copies are individually signed, and the first 100 orders come with an un-announced bonus compliments of Desa. A definite must have!

 

Hardcover, 8.25" x 10.25", 192 full-color pages, spot metallic and fluorescent inks, custom packaging. Individually Signed by Desa.

damn right^^

that is the best view of freight history from around the country..

plus sections on Pre, Nace, Charlie, King, and others this book is a good pick up for aspiring freight writers wanting to learn the ropes and legends...and for all the seasoned vets that want to relive some memories...

graffit world didnt really impress me...it was mainly geared towards european street artists....the usa section was way to small...but if you wanna spend the cash...

 

yeah i thought that, there were so many more people they should of put in instead of the random artists
