Back in the Day - Hardback Back in the Day - HardbackRare and collectible full-size, blue cover edition. Back in the Day is an absolutely fascinating history of skateboarding and the people who have shaped it. Hardcover, 268pgs. English language.From the publisher: William Sharp began taking surfing photographs in southern California in the early seventies. and was quickly drawn into the nascent skateboard scene, shooting friends emulating surfing moves on the pavement. By 1975 he was brought in as a staff photographer for the magazine Skateboard World. During the next five years, he documented the meteoric rise of the movement, capturing thousands of photographs along the way. Back in the Day features hundreds of Sharps astounding photos from this era, the vast majority of which have never been seen before. The work is priceless, not only for its documentary value but for the beautiful and poetic images captured and later developed by Sharp himself (many in black and white). Pipes in Arizona, aqueducts in California, pools all over the place, the locales and images must be seen to be believed. More recently, Ozzie Ausband signed on as an editor of the project, collecting present day quotes and assisting with the paring down of Sharps massive photo archive. Sharps epic photos are populated by the vanguard of the scene such as Tony Alva,

Known as Toast in graffiti circles and Atalier in graphic design circles, Ata Bozaci is recognized as an artist, draftsman, illustrator, and graffiti artist. This Swiss-based dynamo is also known as one of the pioneers of three dimensional graffiti art.

Graffiti focuses on Styles & Characters, 3-D Styles and Living Letters, Sketches is divided into the categories Animals and People and the last section, Illustrations is devoted to Portraits and the commercial Graphics work that appears under the label Atalier.
