It really captures the essence of the Bay area and its amazing artists.

Well designed, and fun to flip through, this book looks great on my coffee table, and is a great addition to my art book collection.

What an amazing book! It really captures the Bay Area art scene so
vividly. The colors jump off the pages. I am not a long-time graffiti
fan, but this book caught my eye with a scene I never could have
imagined. The art is complex, fun, serious and whimsical. Great
photography by Rotman and wonderful documentation of art that is not
otherwise archived.

It's about time the Bay Area got a book to document all the incredible art that takes places not where the normal eye can see, but much of the time in tunnels, sewers, under bridges, and numerous other places you would only find yourself if your a bum. Steve Rotman has done an excellent job in taking quality photos of contemporary graffiti. This is not a history, however, so no 80s and 90s work. But as a writer who has grown up drooling over books about New York and Los Angeles, its great to have a book that represents what we do.

This book is just a work of art!! This book is for both fans of graffiti and photographers. I would recommend this book to anyone even if they hated graffiti with a passion. The only thing is that the font color of the interviews are black on a dark gray background making it hard to read but other than that is an amazing book that made me want to slap my momma.
