Vandalog – The Faith of Graffiti giveaway

Vandalog has decided to giveaway two copies of the re-released “The Faith of Graffiti.” Read about it on the site.

When it was first published in 1974, The Faith of Graffiti was the first book to take a serious look at graffiti. In 1974, Jon Naar’s photos and Norman Mailer’s essay gave the graffiti movement some mainstream legitimacy, as Mailer was one of the first to call writers artists.

All City Writers lille boganmeldelse

Psyre på writersbench.dk har skrevet en lille boganmeldelse, der nok vil være interessant hvis du har overvejet at købe den nye bog “All City Writers”.

All City Writers Cover

til min store begejstring/skræk at dette er en bibel udover det sædvanlige i et omfang på lidt over 400 sider og foruden en masse dejligt billedmateriale er den bestående af tætskrevne spalter i skrift størrelse 6, som måske rent visuelt kan virke lidt tørt, men indholdsmæssigt er det rigtig interessant læsning!

All City Writers

Af danske skrivere kan der nævnes Rens, Sek, Sabe, Cmp, Bates.. […]
