  • Graffiti a New York

    24.90

    Andrea Nelli was in his twenties when he went to New York for the first time. He saw BIG-O 116, EVIL ERF 14, RAT FINK 131, SUPER KOOL 223 written on the walls. In the beginning he thought of them as strange ideograms but he was even more fascinated to find out that the inscriptions were actually names. He decided to archive this phenomenon by taking pictures and to make it the subject of the thesis for his degree on Literature. He got in touch with many cliques of writers that open him the doors of New York.
    Big names, as COCO 144, were his guide. Graffiti a New York by Andrea Nelli is the re-edition of one of first books about Graffiti Writing, published for the first time in 1978.
    This book conserves the original text, precious and rare document of an unthinkable research for that period. It contributes to the historical memory of Graffiti Writing with amazing pictures about the styles and the first tags of Manhattan Heights.
    More than 100 pictures of Names and historical pieces photographed by Andrea Nelli accompany the text, true in the form and in the content.
    Graffiti a New York is a true witness about Graffiti phenomenon in his early years of birth.

  • Buio Dentro

    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 An incredible collection of images and testimonies, mostly unpublished, from the voice of those who lived those years and never forgot them.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.

  • Taking Over The Book

    30.00

    Taking Over was, for almost 15 years, the Italian Free Graff Zine of reference, strictly printed in black and white, because when the letters rock, the choice of colours is secondary. This collection is dedicated to Roberto Malpensa, aka Repo, one of the founders of Taking Over and a true Italian pioneer. From the first productions in Xerographic printing, to the latest releases in high definition Offset, the leitmotif has always been „Keeping it Real“, without compromise. The book contains the complete collection, from 2002 to 2015. In addition to the 15 issues reprinted in A4 format, there is a special unpublished edition dedicated to Repo, with all the best of its production from 1994 to 2014.
