The History of American Graffiti
The History of American Graffiti (Harper Design) is "the definitive story behind the most explosive and influential art form of the last one hundred years. Unprecedented in scope, the book traces the evolution of the movement from its early freight train days to its big-city boom on the streets of New York City and Philadelphia to its modern-day influences."
The book, by Roger Gastman and Caleb Neelon, features interviews with hundreds of artists and over a thousand photographs. The foreword is writtenby legendary graffiti artist, TAKI 183. While it's currently available for pre-order through places like Amazon.com ($40.00 list price for $23.55 as of today), the book will be released on April 5th 2011.
