Format: Hardcover
There are several "how to" books on pinstriping, but this is the only one that shows the ART...and not just on cars, but posters, fridges, t-shirts and even handbags.

Bursting with energy and imagination, this book covers the most exciting work by an international cast of pinstripers and Kuston Kulture artists. Contributors include promising future stars like Dirty Donny, Simon Watts and Skratch, as well as established names such as Jimmy C, "Wildman" Ishii, Makoto and Neil Meillard. Also included a historical pioneers section covering the all time greats such as Von Dutch, Ed Roth and Dean Jeffries

This book highlights the fact that pinstriping is not just a US phenomenon, but is practised around the globe by a vast number of artists. Those Japs are hot with the brush!!!

Pinhead Bible 1 Feb. 2007
By Mr. A. D. Taylor - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I'd been waiting for the release of this book for sometime since I picked up a promo flyer for it at an Art Exhibition in the UK (Pinstripes & Pistons-A Celebration of Kustom Kulture held at Scunthorpe, UK) It was worth the wait. There have been many books on the subject, but this one wraps everything up into one extremely informative & beautifully packaged volume. It doesn't attempt to be a "How to..." manual & why should it, there are plenty of other books out there for the budding striper. It showcases the current talent & the past masters of this fascinating art form. A real must have for both the curious "punter" & experienced pinstriper alike. My one moan was that my buddy Tootall Paul (Cornwall,UK) wasn't featured !!!
Excellent book on the art of pinstriping 26 July 2007
By Robert Cramsie - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Herb Martinez is to be commended for bringing together such a diverse amount of talent from around the globe. Yes, there are many more talented artists in the United States that went uncredited and selecting the ones for this book must have been quite a chore, but I think the general idea was to select those that had an obvious difference in styles in which to showcase. Needless to say, the work of all in the book is awesome. I used to think that pinstriping was of one or two styles but after looking through Herb's book, the creativity and artwork are very different indeed. Thanks for opening up the world of pinstriping to all of us admirers, Herb.
Beautiful book. "State of the Art" 30 May 2007
By T. Cheney - Published on
Format: Hardcover
As stated in another review, the US section is a little thin, but overall, this is a well balanced book with many different artists represented. Superb photography. Presenting "how to" pinstripe is very nearly a waste of time in book form. It's a physical task that is strictly hands on. However, this book is full of inspiration for experienced stripers and those who appreciate the art. Bravo... this one will live on the coffee table for a long time.
A classic collector book 30 Aug. 2010
By Ken S. - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was blown away by the coverage of artists in this book. It is outstanding in its entirety and should be part of everyones library who loves pinstriping. Since I am somewhat late in this review, I have purchased the second book and can recommend it as well. First rate!
Coffee table Book 14 July 2007
By C. L. B. - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a nice hardback coffee table book. Nice layout. Great photography. Brief history on different stripers is good reading for someone interested in car art and striping.
