Additional Information

“Many of the images are today iconic masterpieces. . . . One of the most influential art books of its time.” ―The Big Issue

In 1984 the groundbreaking Subway Art brought graffiti to the world, presenting stunning photographic documentation of the burgeoning movement in New York. Thirty years later, this bible of street art has been updated with over seventy photographs not included in the original edition and new insights on an incredibly rich period for urban art and its legacy.

In new introductions, authors Martha Cooper and Henry Chalfant recall how they gained entry into the New York City graffiti community in the 1970s and 1980s. New afterwords continue the story, tracing the decline of the subway and graffiti scene in the late 1980s to its unexpected rebirth as a global art movement. The authors reveal how the lives of the original subway artists have unfolded and mourn the loss of several to the darker forces of the street. 153 color illustrations

Aiight, if anyone thinks that this isn't a GREAT "2nd Coming" of Subway Art, they're either Jaded or Jealous.
1st of all this book is no -8 1/2 by 11 toss it in yr backpack, bite it and wish you was that dope-type of experience. This FoMo is a genuine coffee table banger, with Clear Large Photos, some old/some new, but even the old ones are new: "Playing on a Wrecked Train" has a Blade Tag that I never seent before, and MIN One is in that Flick!!!WTF!!!I NEVER comprehended him there. That was ill-E to me, cuz like many I have scoured Subway Art for Everything it has. Now I look back and sho'nuff there he is.

Anyways for all the things I wanted to see(a couple more of the classic "Names" pages[there's one] or for instance a dedicated page for the apologies and mistakes like too cold and got chased[there's none])...well for all of my Wants and Wishes, the whole of this book Makes Up For It Like a Mountain Climber. In fact I've ordered another copy just to put in a... Read more
In terms of trying to catch a feeling from these works the book is done perfectly. The sheer size of the book allows for some excellent detail of the pieces. The amount of pieces in the book is incredible, with it ranging from a multitude of well known bombers to a great deal of other lesser know bombers too, some even unknown. The very personal shots that the photographers are able to achieve also adds to the entire book. BAM! reviews son
You can't beat the level of photography and insight found in this book. I had the original but lost it years ago. I got this because I wanted to re-up and saw the 25th ann. edition was out. It's beyond all expectations. Stunning in size and new added essays.
