A stunning, full-color, oversize compilation of the history of the cradle of graffiti. Sumptuous art, and quotes galore, from the 'Godfathers' to the newest hip practitioners. Tagging, Bombing, Styles, Crews, female artists, and a whole lot more.
"From the ashes of the 60s to the dust of Ground Zero, New York graffiti has magnetized and polarized, rocked and shocked. When the hot-eyed and restless ride the city's edge to turn dead walls into worlds of color, motion and passion, Jim and Karla Murray capture their visions and voices with a fire to match. Don't blink." [Jeff Chang]
