Watching my name go by

£65.00

Product description

This books details the emerging graffiti scene of 1970's New York, in it's most early stages. It features the various tags across the city's architecture and infrastructure. It is the first full-length book on graffiti, became a bible for graffiti artists and helped legitimise the art form a decade before anyone else. The centre of the book features an essay written by Normal Mailer. The book's double spread photographs are taken by Mervyn Kurlansky & Jon Naar.

The book has some minor shelf wear, with the cover bending slightly due to reading. The cover and first two pages have a fold in the lower corner. The images are still full of colour and the book is overall well preserved.
