About the Author
Alan Fleisher began painting Bronx subway trains in the summer of 1972. As a popular writer among his peers he wrote with many famous Bronx subway artists throughout the 1970s. His first hand knowledge of graffiti and continued friendship with those he painted with brings a rare insider’s view to the magical early days of subway art. Alan Fleisher lives in Westchester, New York with his wife and two children.
Paul Iovino grew up in The Morris Park section of The Bronx where he painted subway cars from the mid to late 1980s. Paul’s knowledge and introduction to graffiti came from his friendships with early 1970s writers in his neighborhood. The avid historian and photo collector Iovino joined with Alan Fleisher to present the most visual book on early 1970s graffiti ever published. Paul Iovino is married and currently lives in the Bronx.
