Best graff book ever! This book has everything from tips and tricks to historical graff facts! It’s a must buy! Definitely worth the cash! 5 of 5 Stars!
Super stoked to get this book, I can't even express how much. This is a must have for all serious writers and beginners alike. Anyone who wants to evolve their handstyle NEEDS this book. Thank you for stocking this. A graffiti classic and a how to manual for the dopest handstyles in the US. Awesome book 5 of 5 Stars!
I don't know how well this book is selling here but it should be a best seller. Think of the best typography book a graphic designer can get his hands on, that's what this book is to a writer (or should be at least in my opinion). i can't even begin to describe how much i appreciate what these guys put together for us, it's truly invaluable... i'm on a mission to learn that philly script till i get it down to a science 5 of 5 Stars!
Good to see you guys got this in. I've been waiting and hoping to see it in Barnes & Noble, so I can pick it up free of charge, but it doesn't look like they're going to be carrying it. Really happy to see that it has a Boston AND New England section, any books that even mention Boston, usually completely leave out the rest of New England which is a shame because there are so many amazing f*cking writers in CT., R.I., Southeastern Ma., and elsewhere in New England, that have been putting it down for decades and get little recognition. King TOMB DBM UW R.I.P.!!!! 5 of 5 Stars!
