Book Description

9 Mar 2005
This revised edition of the first and most complete book on board sports graphics -- from rarer, classic archival material to the latest trends -- includes exciting examples of recent board graphics. Surfing, skateboarding and snowboarding have produced a stunning array of imagery and some of the most influential graphics to emerge in the last 30 years. "Board" is a comprehensive survey of the best of board sports graphics, from rare, classic archive material to the latest trends. Top artists and art directors, such as Jim Phillips, Erik Brunetti, Todd Francis, Marc McKee and Scott Clum, explain the complex subcultures which have given rise to this art, and examine the close links between board sports and music, design, and fashion. Anarchic, funny, brutal, and beautiful, "Board" is a unique document of the visual expression of youth culture.

1.0 out of 5 stars they call it the second edition?! 30 Dec 2004
Ill give it some credit the 1st book (bored) was ace and was full of some really good quality images and collections of some great artwork from all kinds of boards, but i dont know how they have the nerve to call this book a second edition. The only difference between the 1st one and this so called 'second edition' is (at the most) 6 pages of new images; the rest of the book is exactly the same word for word, so my adivce to anyone looking at this is: Get it if you dont have the 1st one but if you already own the 1st one DO NOT BUY!

4.0 out of 5 stars For designers, surfers, skaters and snowboarders 27 April 2000
By chilvs - Published on Amazon.com
This is quite a cool book really, although like lots of graphics style books, they are best for browsing rather than reading. BOARD has a three sections each devoted to eithet the graphics of surfing, snowboarding and skate(boarding). There is a bit of text to each section, but mostly it is good quality colour photographs of the development of various board graphics through the years.
There is a great section on the early Mambo designs and the skateboard section is particualy diverse. Anyway I'll shut up now and try not to sound too much like a literary critic because basically this isn't literature; its is graphics and would appeal to graphic designers as much as surfers etc. cool

4.0 out of 5 stars Warning! - Not for Your Younger Set 29 Dec 2010
By Paula Ruch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book contains a lot of nudity, vulgarity, drug references and violence. Fine for adults, but would not recommend for the younger crowd.
