The only definitive history of a vibrant art form. Until now there has been almost no written insight into this vast subculture, which inspires fascination across America and around the world. As dazzling as the art it celebrates, the book is packed with 1, 000 full-color illustrations and features in-depth interviews with more than 125 train artists and writers. Hundreds of never-before-seen photographs span the style's evolution, and the authoritative text from an all-star team of authors provides unprecedented perspective--including the first-ever written history of monikers, the precursors of train graffiti, developed by hobos and rail workers to communicate en route. Bound to surprise graffiti artists, graphic designers, and urban culture buffs alike, this book will inspire anyone who has ever been interested in graffiti.
