Cambridge, MA and London, The MIT Press, 1982. First edition, first impression. Hardback. A near fine copy. An important early book focussing on New York graffiti. Photographs throughout with four pages in colour. Jacket a little rubbed and nicked, with some fading to the spine. A handful of short closed tears, chips and creases. Expanded from Castleman?s dissertation at Columbia University, through candid interviews, in nine comprehensive chapters, he provides detailed insights into the history, motivations, experiences and approaches of New York graffiti writers and crews. The publication is also notable for the early appearance of photographs by the now legendary documentarians Martha Cooper and Henry Chalfant, subsequently popularised in the writer?s bible Subway Art (1984). Issued simultaneously in hardcover and paperback, the hardcover is relatively scarce in decent condition. [11135, Hyraxia Books].
