Im not sure about the rest of you, but i would DEFINITLEY buy a book dedicated to Nace. Its a given that as many color photos of his work as could be included would be good, but to make it more personal i suggest that there be segments from the Mayhem guys and whoever else he was close to. Stories, memorial peices, you get the idea. The procedes could be used for some kind of memorial, or to pay for the funeral costs. I know that after a service and all the things that go along with someones passing the bills can be exorbitant. Im sure his family could use some support.

 

I hope someone seriously considers this. I think it would be very succesfull. RIP.

I HONSTLY THINK IT WOULD BE DOPE IF A BOOK WAS MADE , HAVE ZEPHYR DO IT, LIKE HE DID FOR DONDI, AND HAVE EVERY SINGLE ONE OF HIS FR8S IN IT FROM THE EARLY DAYS TO THE END, AND HAVE HIS FRIENDS SIT DO WN AND PUT THEM IN ORDER,THAT SHIT WOULD BE SO FRESH,

 

THERES A DOPE MEMORIAL ON THE LAY-LO .COM SITE IF YOU GUYS HAVENT ALREADY SEEN IT.

a little biography thing to start it off, then friends and crew mates should just tell stories of missions and chase stories. crammed in between should be a shitload of flix. also maybe some interviews from mags (if he's done any).

I really don't want to seem disrespectful, but I just think it sucks how much fame people get with death. I'm NOT AT ALL saying that Nace doesn't deserve props and perhaps even a book to celebrate his life and artwork, but if this at all like any other death to fame situation, I'm betting not half of Nace's biggest supporters really cared about him when he was alive.

Like that 90210 episode where David Silver's friend dies and all the snobs who treated him like shit started talking about how great a friend he was. "How we treat someone when they are dead is secondary to how you treat them when they are alive".

That movie Heathers is all about this kind of thing.

 

I didn't know Nace, and I didn't really hear much about him until he died. It is too bad he isn't around to hear how much we all love him now.

 

Again, I mean no disrespect to Nace's friends and family and supporters. A book is definately a great way to celebrate someone who is gone. The profits should go to his family, for real.

 

So tell your living friends how much you like what they do, cuz they can't hear it once they're gone.

Trying to disregard the moron who just posted before me, i really have no idea how long it will take to put out. there are lot of variables that come into play with something of this magnatude and alot of people who are involved, so its deffintly going to take some time.

ya i feel what your saying oriok but honestly the true writers will respect him for his art anywayse. like maybe they didnt hear of him before his death but because of his death they heard about him and had to check out his work. it is kinda screwed up the way shit works like that but what can ya do. when i was first gettin into graff i went on 50mmla and was lookin at some dream flicks and i was so feeling them. then i went to another sight and found a lot more. then like two weeks later my writing buddys like ohh ya dream was the king. im just like dos he still write. my friends like hes dead man. shit sucks like that. anyways i dont think nace was doing graffiti for fame. i think after a while it becomes such a part of your life that it only matters to you what your doing

Guest lab rat

don't disgrace the history of nace by commercializing what he did.. and if there is a nace book made, what about a dream book? or any other great writer that has died.. are you saying nace deserves a book more than them?.. think about that first before you put out anything.

i don't want to start anything, but i don't see how it would be disrespectfull to make a book of Nace's life and works. i could see if maybe whoever did it was overcharging and ripping people off or keeping all the profits for themselves, but other than that i think its a great way to remember someone who is gone and for a whole bunch of new people to be exposed to his stuff (which is some of the best i've ever seen and the most original). i know that if i died tomorrow i would want as many people as possible to see the stuff i had done, although none of it is anywhere as good as Nace's.
