Conceived by Mervyn Kurlansky on a brief visit to New York in 1972, he was so impressed by the outbreak of graffiti on subway cars, buses, trucks, streets and buildings. So, he decided to re-explore the city with Jon Naar and record this phenomenon.
And this magnificent book, the first major publication on the subject of subway graffiti, is the result of his combined effort: photographic graffiti plates on the subway by Mervyn Kurlansky and Jon Naar, as well as an essay by Norman Mailer.
If you’ve never had this book in your hands, you’ll love to see that under this stunning dust jacket hides a purple cover.
