Editorial Reviews

Review

"... filled with the most amazing photos and personal stories from the writers who started it all in the earliest days of subway art." -- Blade, The Crazy Five, New York

"This is the book you want from the guy who was there!" -- James Jessop

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.

Love it!! Got a first hand look at this book by one of the featured graffiti artists (my brother - FDT 56) and so I had to order a copy for myself since he was in NO WAY handing over his copy to me. :) Definitely keeps the memories of NYC and the subway I rode for many many years alive and how I remember them. I may have relocated but I'll always be a New Yorker for life!!

just when you think the world may have exhausted itself of old skool graff photos, a book like this pops up and brings you back to "the day". what we have here, are the photographic selections of several photographers from the early seventies documenting the burgeoning nyc graffiti scene. i would say with some certainty that a lot of first and some second generation writers are featured here. ample photos of the ones, twos, fours and fives make this is an i.r.t.-centric book like most of the other books that have covered this era of writing. many of the usual suspects represent here - cliff 159, blade, comet, etc and of course my man clyde who i had the pleasure of meeting just recently. if you are one of the privileged few, as am i, who was present for all this graffiti madness, you should already have this book. if you were not around at the time but truly appreciate graffiti, then this is one cool history book. i would also like to recommend keith baugh's excellent book, early new york subway graffiti 1973-1975.Early New York Subway Graffiti 1973-1975: Photographs from Harlem, South Bronx, Times Square and Coney Island mr baugh's book is every bit an equal to this book and makes a great companion volume. i wrote a review for mr baugh's book for those who may be interested. on a technical note, classic hits is hardcover, 142 pages, color photographs, with scattered text through out. mostly all the photographs are crisp and clear in a seventies sort of way with usually one, sometimes two, large photos to a page. i give much respect and appreciation to the authors and photographers of this book and of course to all the graffiti trailblazers. highly recommend.

Great, I have to be partial since I'm in it. This book brings back lots of great memories from the 70s. A very good read for anyone in the graph community.

Great book from REAL WRITERS during the prime of the GRAFFITI.. ALE was one of the PREMIER writers of that time. Hitting the 2 and 5 lines often, next day waiting on 180th st station for them to pass. I was glad to be a part of the era...hitting the outside and inside with a passion ..see me in page 124 of this book ....Mike170
