When I saw this book I was kind of hesitant since I have been on a long and somewhat unsuccessful look for a New York graffiti book, but I decided to hope for the best and order this book. Once I received the book I was not disappointed. This book is pretty complete, covering the subways from the early 70s all the way through modern graffiti. What I liked best about this book is that it didn't simply focus on bombing or piecing, it showed both styles of graffiti and explained the origins of each. If you want a good graff book then buy this book, you'll be happy that you did.

This book is pretty thick and has tons of great photos and a lot of text to read. i feel like its one of the better graff books out there, and ive read a lot. the only thing i dont like about it, is its more about piecing and less about bombing, but thats all prefrence. theres a lot of good quotes from past and present nyc writers that i do find very intresting. definetly worth adding to any collection.

We go to New York about once a year. I had seen graffitti but never really understood the significance of it. This book does a great job providing history and direction on the art of Grafitti.

I'm from NYC and grew up with graffiti all my life. This book does an EXCELLENT job capturing the timeline, the expression, the artists, and the stages of the art. Great gift for anyone who loves graffiti and/or the history of NYC.

These books are large enough to be coffee table books, and with graphics to match.

Unmatchable is psbooks.co.uk's (Postscript) customer service. There was a glitch (not their fault), and they handled it like champions.
