This book is a great resource for anyone who has an interest in various graffiti styles/fonts. There are handwritten styles (tags), bubble letters (throw ups), simple letters, 3D letters, letters w/ characters, letters made with the human form, semi-wild style, and wild style pieces just to name a few.

As mentioned in the product description, taking part in this project are some familiar faces to the graffiti scene: Askew, Persue, Wane, 123 Klan, Ces, and Rime. Regarding artists I was not familiar with, this book helped me realize what I've been missing, and with the help of web sites provided throughout the book, I was able to pull up more art from those artists that were new to me.

Along with a web site listed for each artist, there is information about the crews they are a part of, mention of their favorite letter, and a paragraph of info. The paragraph might contain info about the artist, what graffiti means to them or what they love most about graffiti, and how they went about creating their alphabet. I loved how it mentioned that one writer woke up at 5 AM and went to painting his alphabet around the city before clocking in for work that day.

My only dislikes were that a couple corners of my cover were a tad bent. Also, I felt that with what was shown in regards to some artists' work, a lot was left to be desired when it came to the execution of their alphabets (eg Akor, Beet, and Loomit to name a few). Then again, that could be a matter of taste. With 154 different executions, there is something for everybody!

One reviewer mentioned their displeasure with the lack of colored executions. I went back and counted about 75 monotone letters. That didn't bother me so much, because it gave the letters a blackbook/sketch feel, and some letters are so nice that there's no need for the extra filler.

This book is well worth the money. If you have been unsure or thinking about buying this book, my advice is to buy it before it goes off the shelves again.

I ordered this book to get my creative side back when it comes to graffiti. Needless to say this book has everything I need and more. The pictures showing all the different styles of graff is ridiculous. If you are looking for a book to help you find your own style then this is it. This is a great reference to have and a perfect book to have in any artists collection!

This book was everything I was looking for. I'm not a graffiti writer, but I love to look at the really artistic graffiti and to include elements of it in my own artwork. This book details the alphabets used by many graffiti writers from all over the world, and it is absolutely OUTSTANDING in terms of beautifully photographed examples, brief bios of the writers, and their deconstructed lettering. While this book doesn't make copying or adapting the artwork foolproof, if you have some artistic ability you can learn to form your own style. I would recommend it to anyone who admires these urban geniuses.

I have a lifelong love of studying Type, Fonts, Lettering, Signs, Calligraphy. The shape of letters. The strokes. I've always admired the graffiti artists / street artists who focused on their letters. This book has mind boggling examples that leave you saying "wow" and "I wish I had done that". Imagine a simple assignment to write the 26 letters of the alphabet, and then see what true artists can do with that assignment.

I love books, but this book would definitely make my short list for being among the best.

this book nullified 13 years of extensive compilation of graffiti fonts of my own. snip-its, pictures, shreds of rare magz, originals, a rare video called "VIDEOGRAFF #1-12" and a myriad of techniques and tools to take a "day1" beginner to pro. the internet is really cool for making this happen. A one-stop shop from beginner to pro!
I recommend this for anyone who wants to learn graffiti in earnest. Consider it a practice manual, and a great one at that, til you develop your own styles.

*Fo' y'all that don't know, no biters allowed!"
I initially checked this book out of the library, twice! I was so blown away by all the different styles of artists around the world that I decided to purchase the book. I am interested in fonts to begin with so take that into consideration when reading this review.
