    Want to learn Graffiti? Then this book is just right for you!

    But this publication can do even more than comparable learning books, because the content is extended by a very interesting facet, offering an insight into the graffiti culture itself through interviews with world famous graffiti writers like BATES, NYCHOS, CHAS, MADC, ASKEW and others. The Kings & Queens of the scene tell us their story and secrets of how they became the best writers in the world. In addition, you can study their works from the beginning to their current professional level!

    The author is Eske Touborg, who has specialized in publishing graffiti literature since 2014 and has already published several smaller titles. Eske now bundles all his knowledge in this comprehensive guide, which more than deserves the name GRAFFITI BIBLE. Amen!

  • RAZOR – Colors on Steel

    29.90

    RAZOR is and remains an exceptional phenomenon when it comes to graffiti on trains – worldwide and across all generations! For more than 30 years now, he has been playing his colourful game – mainly in the yards of his home in northern Germany, but trips across the nation and Europe have also been documented in this book.

    In every phase of his busy career, he has managed to stand out from the great mass of writers and to constantly raise the bar in terms of quality. The output of his first two decades was still to be found in classic stylewriting, but in recent years he has expanded his repertoire to include conceptual works such as his ICE project. RAZOR – COLORS ON STEEL is structured like a blackbook and has a very personal character. He himself opens the book with the following words:

    “Let’s start a blackbook session! Take your time, sit back and enjoy. I’ll show you my blackbook with my works from back in the days when it all began in 1990. It all started first at the end of the 1980s when I was infected by a virus called graffiti. From that point on I did graffiti wherever I wanted to and whenever I wanted to. I’ll show you my photos and I will tell you lots of stories, some crazy, some funny and with all those little details and in the same manner, like I would tell them to my friends.”

    The book was already self-published in 2017 and is now coming to graffiti shops for the first time via the third and expanded edition.

  • Typograffiti – Fonts of True Writers – von A bis Z

    24.90

    Architektur, Typografie und Graffiti sind von jeher eng verbunden. Vielen Writern dient die Architektur als Leinwand, auf der mit Typografie und Graffiti experimentiert wird. Dabei hat nahezu jeder Writer schon einmal einen eigenen Font gestaltet oder zumindest darüber nachgedacht, aus den Buchstaben, die er für seine Arbeit an der Wand entwirft, ein komplettes ABC zu bauen.

    Die Publikation versammelt zahlreiche Legenden des Graffitis, die teils eigens für diesen Anlass neue Fonts in ihrem jeweils unverwechselbaren Stil geschaffen haben. Mit seinen unterschiedlichen Beiträgen feiert Typograffiti den grafischen und kulturellen Ausdruck der Writer und zeigt die Lebendigkeit der Szene ebenso wie die Aktualität ihrer Fonts.

    Das Buch stellt alle Writer und ihre Schriften ausführlich vor, enthält begleitende Statements sowie Aufnahmen der Fonts in der Anwendung auf der Wand. So versteht sich die Publikation als Inspiration für Sprüher, Schriftgestalter, Grafiker und Kunstinteressierte.

    Mit Arbeiten von:

    AKUT, AMIT 2.0, ASEM, ASH, BIRNE, CARIO, CHRISTIAN DÜNOW, DELTA, DAIKER, DRIK THE VILLAIN, DXTR, DYSET, ECB, FUME, GÁBOR DOLEVICZÉNYI , GISMO, HEIZER, HOKER IKE86 INKA, JEKS, JUSER, KID CRAP, MAJO BROTHERS, MATTHIAS GEPHART, MEXER, M05K, MR.

  • Future Memory

    29.90

    The exhibition Future/Memory, curated by SuperBlast (Berlin), gathers together works by top-class international artists rooted in and inspired by street culture. With their different artistic approaches the artists show us their view of society; the towns and streets they roam and inhabit. Objects lying discarded in the street are turned into sculptures.

    Photographs use images of playing children from the Bronx. Graffiti is made into abstract art and painted icons are turned into a contemporary installation. The exhibition asks questions about our urban habitat, points out processes of transformation and opens up new ways of seeing our social and architectural surroundings. All the artists from the exhibition will be in Dresden during the festival. Most of the works will be created in situ, ranging from painting, photography, sculpture and installations to conceptual art.

    Future/Memory translates graffiti, street culture and urban art into the white cube.

  • On The Run Books 14 – How & Nosm The Brazil Diaries (Hardcover)

    24.90

    How&Nosm – The Brazil Diaries is an intimate look at the Perre twins’ art explorations in Brazil. European graffiti artists and muralists residing in New York City, How&Nosm found that living in a society whose strict laws deny writers their right to self-expression meant they had to satisfy their creative appetite elsewhere. The solution was to travel to places with a greater understanding and tolerance for graffiti and street art. These trips were liberating and soon transformed from a desire, to a routine, to an addiction. They have painted in more than 60 countries thus far, with Brazil in particular proving to be the perfect playground for this ever-active duo.

    With a limited color palette in hand, How&Nosm create striking murals laced with social commentary. Their signature black, white and red intricate patterns, stark line work and stylized forms heighten the intensity of the message.

  • On The Run Books 16 – Hall Of Fame New York City (Hardcover)

    24.90

    New York City is the birthplace of graffiti style writing. It is the place where young writers first began to transform letters from simple tags on a wall to elaborate masterpieces of colorful and camoflauged letters embellished with characters that depicted friends and heroes alike.

    By the 1980s the artwork was quickly destroyed by authorities and the artists seeking to preserve some of their works took hold of schoolyards around the city to paint grander works. It was a no-nonsense approach to save their art form and spread their fame to the local kids. The most famous of these schoolyards is located in East Harlem on 106th street and Park Avenue and it became known as the Hall of Fame.

    At first the Hall of Fame was established to bring together the best artists in the city and have them paint in the same schoolyard supplanting the number 5 train as the showcase place for the best graffiti art in New York. Over the years as the word spread artists from around the city would sneak in and leave their work at night in this unsanctioned museum. From Skeme, Dez, and Daze in the early 1980s to Vulcan, Jon One, and Dome in the late 1980s to Part, Ezo, and TDS rejuvenating the schoolyard with style in the 1990s to TC5 (West, Dash, Psycho, Wane, Cope2, etc.), TDS (Flite, Part, Noc167, Serve, T-Kid170), TATS (Bio, BG183, Nicer, How, Nosm, Sen2) crews tight productions in the 2000s to the writers that travel to New York to paint there today this book documents the exciting artwork that was created in a small obscure school in Harlem that became known as the legendary Hall of Fame.

    Join us on this artistic retrospective of the famous and important New York landmark, the Graffiti Hall of Fame.

  • EX IT – Graphic Novel

    25.00

    „Und dann war da blaues Licht, ich weiß nicht, wir kamen ja gerade erst die Böschung wieder hinauf. Mit farbverschmierter Hose und noch Schweiß im Gesicht von der körperlichen Arbeit kamen die da direkt auf uns zugerollt. Nachdem wir unser Zeug schon vorher losgeworden waren, haben wir versucht, die Nerven zu behalten. Steigen da zwei Uniformierte aus und fragen: Entschuldigt, aber habt ihr da im Tunnel wen Malen sehen (macht mit dem Arm eine Bewegung, als ob der Bulle wüsste, wie man eine Dose hält)? Wir so: nein nein, tut uns leid, haben hier nur schnell ein Päuschen eingelegt und gechilled. Während der andere Bulle an den Uralt-Bildern des Tunnels vor uns schnuppern ging, haben wir Ihnen einen schönen Tag gewünscht, uns entspannt ins Auto gesetzt und sind losgefahren.“

    In hartem, virtuosen Schwarz-Weiß zeichnet Rubens Bugatti eine Geschichte von nächtlichen Streifzügen. Es geht um das Getrieben-Sein zur Aneignung urbaner Nicht-Orte und die Auseinandersetzung mit den langen Armen des Gesetzes, subsumiert in verschiedenen Episoden dieser Graphic Novel.
    Schnell muss der Portagonist arbeiten, flink und hellwach muss er sein, immer bereit zum abrupten Abbruch und zur Flucht. Was bleibt, sind Umrisse und Farben, Notizen und Zeichen, Botschaften, deren ganze Kraft erst nach getaner Arbeit und dem Aufgehen der Sonne sichtbar werden oder gleich ungesehen im Buff landen.
    Graffiti ist l’art pour l’art. Egal ob einsames Leben oder in Gesellschaft, im Dunkel der nächtlichen Stadtkulisse ist man nie ganz allein. Die Erlebnisse mischen sich mit surrealen Begegnungen und Begebenheiten die nicht anders als visuell erzählbar sind.

  • Buio Dentro (Nuova Ed.)

    25.00

    Buio Dentro is a foray into the darkest side of Milanese graffiti, the bad side, the side that has nothing to do with the quiet Sundays in the Hall of Fame nor with the street artist of the moment. In the Instagram era, Corrado Piazza stops time and brings back to life the golden age Milan, exhuming from the subway manholes the most important names of the Milanese scene from 1987 to 1998. An incredible collection of images and testimonies, mostly unpublished, from the voice of those who lived those years and never forgot them. Without filters, without censorship. Unlike the countless publications that preceded it, Buio Dentro focuses exclusively on bombing the subsoil, in that network of tunnels that constitutes the metropolitan network of Milan. A romantic project that aims to tell, in the most complete and reliable way, the roughest face of an unforgettable and unrepeatable season of aerosol writing in Milan.

  • Graffiti an der Line in Basel 1985–1990 (2nd edition)

    55.00

    1985 gaben sich Jugendliche Fantasienamen wie «Scorpio», «Steve» oder «Zois» und sprayten auf die Wände der Line, die damals gerade fertig gebaut war, erste Buchstaben. Das war der Startschuss für die Graffiti Bewegung in Basel an der Line. Was die Jugendlichen, die sich selber «Homeboys» und «Flygirls» nannten, damals genau angetrieben hat, ist im Rückblick schwer zu sagen. Man sieht vielen Pieces aus dieser frühen Zeit ihre Leichtigkeit noch immer an. Es wurde gesprayt ohne zu überlegen, wohin das alles führen wird. Und man hatte Platz zum Ausprobieren. Die Line war ein perfekter Ort für Graffiti: Kilometerlange Wände, mitten in der Stadt und trotzdem ein Unort aus Beton, Gleisschotter und Schienen. Ausser Sprayer und Bahnarbeiter hält sich da niemand auf. Tagsüber, wenn die Züge nach Basel SBB ein- und ausfahren, präsentieren sich die Wände als perfektes Medium zur Unterhaltung der Reisenden. Das Buch dokumentiert möglichst objektiv die ersten 5 Jahre der Line. Das Buch beinhaltet über 500 Abbildungen die nach Standort und Schicht zugeordnet wurden. Auch gibt das Buch einen kleinen Ausblick in die 90er Jahre an der Line. Zudem sind einige Texte die in diesem Zeitraum über die Line publiziert wurden enthalten. 2. überarbeitete Auflage mit 16 zusätzlichen Seiten Offsetdruck Fadenheftung Text über die Geschichte der Line (nur auf Deutsch) mit Zitaten von Zeitzeugen über 500 Abbildungen von diversen Fotografen

    Boundary breaking graffiti writer CES53 publishes first time overview of his artwork, embodying 40 years of work.

    “Ces53 – CLOWN / MASTER MANIPULATOR / STYLE MASTER / BAD BOY / LEGEND / WRITER / ANARCHIST / FREAK / FOOL / BOUNDARY BREAKER / ARTIST” depicts a huge selection of Ces53 his artwork. Drawings, paintings, sculptures, legal, illegal, shocking and beautiful. All compiled in a 400 page full colour, hard cover bound book. With nearly 2000 photos probably the first graffiti writer showcasing such a large body of work in one object. ‘Being the first’ isn’t new to Ces53; he was the first to paint a train from left to right, top to bottom in the Netherlands, he was the one making train writing a true crusade in the Netherlands, he was the first to paint a train in Belgium, to most non-Germans he is the one that put Berlin on the map as a graffiti playground. Until we recently found out he wasn’t, but for 25 years we all thought that he was the first Dutchie to paint a train in New York. Ces53 was the first in jail for graffiti for longer than a night or two in the Netherlands. He ignited train graffiti as a true believe, and inspired the notorious MSN crew, and many others in the Netherlands and the rest of Europe to pour oil on the fire he started. Besides all the facts, Ces53 is a true and original when it comes to authenticity and style; the shapes, the characters, the colours…it is all his own. His work from childhood until recent graffiti on trains is now available in a carefully designed book. With text contributions by Milk, Eras, Sento, Cat22 and many more.

    Many of his images are accompanied by texts to the respective actions and let the reader share in his memories. The book is rounded off with additional guest contributions from some of his companions at the time.

In addition, a variety of personal texts by the authors give an intimate insight into their experiences and perspectives. On the one hand, these texts convey a very vivid picture of the life of the Berlin graffiti scene, on the other hand, they allow the reader to experience the Berlin of days gone by.

    The first issue portrays writers and crews between 1990 and 2000, with the fall of the Wall kicking off the graffiti boom in Berlin. In the aftermath, a huge adventure playground opened up for Berlin writers, with unresolved police courts and a sometimes disoriented adult world creating the ideal breeding ground for what is now probably the largest and most active graffiti scene in the world. The focus is on the application of graffiti on trains, which is also the subject of most of the pictures and texts in the book, but uncensored private pictures and graffiti on walls are also presented.

    This first volume contains portraits with many photos and personal texts or comments of the following graffiti authors and crews:

    BAS2, BOY, CATS, CHILL, CHIO, DEON, DISNE, DMB, DRUM, FOK, INKA, KEL, KMER, KAMEL, LYTE, ODEM, POET62, REW, RUZD, DSYER, SEKD, SHEK, SOME, STEAK, TFB, TOK, TORCH, TOWN, VDS, WEX and many more.

    Also included in the book are mixed chapters with hundreds of photos of many other graffiti writers and crews from the 90s.

  • International Topsprayer – Expired – MOSES & TAPS

    49.90

    TOPSPRAYER EXPIRED – The limitation period edition

    The INTERNATIONAL TOPSPRAYER book published by Publikat in 2011 – which has been sold out for several years and traded at horrendous prices on Ebay – is now coming back in a completely revised limitation period edition. Like the first version, the successor will again feature the legendary lenticular shaking cover, which crisply sums up their concept.

    It is believed that shortly after its release, a note similar to the following will be found in the files of various graffiti investigation groups: „Between 2007 and 2010, the defendants MOSES and TAPS switched their pseudonyms. With the help of an unknown number of others involved in the crime, they bombed 1000 trains over a period of 1000 days. In May 2011, they published their deeds in the illustrated book INTERNATIONAL TOPSPRAYER. However, since no evidence of perpetration could be derived from the book, the relevant preliminary proceedings had to be finally closed after ten years due to the occurrence of the statute of limitations according to section 78 of the Criminal Code.

    After the expiry of the statute of limitations, MOSES & TAPS are now clearing the air with the book TOPSPRAYER EXPIRED, MOSES & TAPS now comprehensively admit all accusations of the proceedings in words and pictures. Furthermore, the suspects supplement the accusations with previously unknown photographs and descriptions of the crimes. In addition, several hundred previously unknown graffiti crimes are documented, especially from the years 2011 and 2012.”

  • Doktor IDMTR – Escape From Reality Book

    Ucieczka Od Rzeczywistości.
    The unique publication that takes you back in time. Explore unseen moments. Doktor IDMTR

    Escape From Reality is a sentimental trip into the past, to the nineties, in the company of the community passionate about aerosol art. Graffiti pieces, both on trains and walls, would for years be considered nothing more than distasteful eyesores lacking any form of design. The artists would be perceived as ignorant vandals. However, over the years the overview on street art has changed.

    The graffiti culture is deeply rooted in Polish reality, so it deserves to be documented and described. Escape From Reality is an authentic testimony of people connected to this art. It presents plenty of personal writings approachable for readers from all backgrounds – writings that portray street artists’ everyday lives and passion. All of these stories did really happen, but weren’t disclosed up to this point. This book will let them see the light of day.

    This publication aims to reach an audience of those interested in art and history of the nineties as well as those who want to immerse into the hermetic community of Polish and worldwide train writing. It will be a unique publication on the book market and an important event for the Polish graffiti community.

    Escape From Reality aims to present the community and culture of Polish graffiti at the turn of the century – in the nineties. On the 144 pages of the book, I will present an awe-inspiring collection of private photographs, personal reflections and stories that break age-old stereotypes and show a different, positive view on graffiti. This work will be an act of opening up by one of the most prolific Silesian graffiti writers of the late nineties, who currently does his art in the UK – Doktor MTR.

  • Edward Nightingale – You can’t always win

    About failure in graffiti

    ​In November 2019 a group of friends traveled to Tashkent in Uzbekistan to paint the local subway system. Their lack of chance is captured in this book.

    Edward’s most emotional and intimate publication to this day is a visual essay about failure in graffiti.

    As trainwriting happens to be illegal, trains often are protected against unwanted visitors. With high-security levels, success is not always guaranteed.
    Sometimes there can be even a complete lack of it.
    Every graffiti writer experienced those moments. But yet it is a topic hardly talked about.
    Out of a writer's perspective, nothing happens.
    Follow four friends around remote areas of Tashkent, trying their luck with the subway for a week.
    But nothing happens.
