Synopses & Reviews
Another rare look at the guarded world of a graffiti artists' blackbook. Whether sculpted in steel, scrawled on walls or executed as sketches, graffiti is a huge and growing phenomenon.
The "blackbook" is the most coveted and guarded part of a graffiti writer's arsenal. The foreunner to this great new book, Stylefile - Blackbook.Sessions or, was runaway bestseller. Blackbook Sessions 2 draws the reader into this magical new form, and shows how the creation of graffiti evolves from quick illustrations of thoughts and ideas to a process of trial and error, finally arriving at the final street style. Some street styles are no more than sketches or plans with all their budding strengths and difficulties, while others still are complex finished works of art. Because many writers guard their Blackbooks closely this book provides a rare opportunity to study the raw talent of some of the world's most famous graffiti artists, past and present.
