Item description for Piecebook: The Secret Drawings of Graffiti Writers by Sacha Jenkins & David Villorente...

Before it hits the wall, graffiti is often planned out in a black book - an artist's sketchbook sometimes called a "piece book" - "piece" being short for "masterpiece." Piecebook: The Secret Drawings of Graffiti Writers reproduces pages from actual black books that graffiti artists used to perfect and share their work. Unpublished drawings by some of New York graffiti history's most important writers, including Zephyr, Dondl, Daze, CRASH, Lady Pink, T-Kid, CAP, and Ghost, chronicle the history of this unique art form.

Reviews - What do customers think about Piecebook: The Secret Drawings of Graffiti Writers?

great archive and a fascinating look  Jul 15, 2008
i myself grew up a graffiti writer and are quite familiar to all those who contributed art work to this book. it was well done the prologue written by sacha jenkins(another graffiti writer) was well spoken an hit home as we who grew up in the early days of this era of graffiti sub culture can relate to. the art was reproduced with colorful visages that brought it all to life again as if it was done a few hours before i bought the book. each page was a look back to yesteryear, reading the messages that were a staple of the times ''fresh,def,and many other phrases we used then bring memories of an earlier time when it was fun to do the graffiti and create styles of your imagining.special thanks to chino villorente (another graffiti writer) who took the time an the love to put this together!! i truly enjoyed this book tremendously and glad i bought it, any graffiti writer should have this book on the shelf next to all the other homage books of the street life growing up.
Excellently executed, this is the ultimate blackbook for all REAL graf heads!  May 7, 2008
Piecebook: The Secret Drawings of Graffiti Writers has successfully compiled a who's who of writer's writers in a format that looks so legit, you'd swear you could feel the grooves in the pages left by pencils and pens... as authentic and realistic as possible, there are even a few blank sheets to get up yourself! I even tried to peel the sticker off the inside cover!
