I got this book for christmas of my beautiful girlfriend – who looks at this blog. I wouldnt have bought it personally – because Im trying not to buy loads of graf books to add to a ridiculous collection. BUT – this book is really good, the design of it is my favourite part.
Its made by YKO + LEK from France – YKO on the design front. . . It basically the two of them breaking down the alphabet page by page – each one of them doing 2 pages for each letter. LEK’s are more hand drawn and raw while the YKO ones are more computer/vector based – but really fresh in some cases.
Then the go an interview some graff writers from France – Gorey ( the don ) , Horphe, Poch , Jay One etc . . . The interviews are short and sweet but a good insight – kind of a more personal insight into their philosophies on painting. Any book with Gorey in it gets my vote. Nice book, lovely layout and real nice cover. Really good for the collection and kinda makes me want to make my own book on Irish graffiti .
