The ABCs of Style

A Graffiti Alphabet

Edited by David Villorente. Text by Dana James.

Featured image, by Trike, is captioned "T is for Transit, the Ones and the Twos."

S is for Subway, and Spraycans to use. T is for Transit, the Ones and the Twos.

Filled with 26 colorful marker drawings contributed by some of graffiti art's ultimate style masters, The ABCs of Style is part children's book, part adult art primer, tracking the evolution of graffiti letterforms. Each letter of the alphabet has been rendered by a different artist, with work from renowned writers Blade, Lee, Daze, Fuzz One, Haze, Jester, Doc, Ces, Cey, Trike, Part, Reas, Wane, SP, Keo, Queen Andrea and many others. Their styles range from early Bubble and Stick styles all the way to Wild style and beyond. But despite all these previously unseen original works, this book is not only for graffiti aficionados and art lovers. Both kids and parents will appreciate the book's rhythmic, happy verse that concludes with a gentle exhortation to rest. As appropriate on a coffee table as on a bunk bed, The ABCs of Style is truly art for everyone.
