With certain graffiti books and magazines which shall definitely remain nameless, I can feel a bit short-changed sometimes. Not enough content for cover price. I can happily say that the opposite is true of Street Fonts. You get a lot of bang for your buck in this book. It also presents a very clear agenda and sticks to it throughout. Graffiti writers from all over the world offer up their alphabets in their own inimitable styles, some drawn, some graphic, some downright bizarre.
I rushed through it the first time around to see what the writers that I knew had created and then a second time, took more time to peruse the offerings of the guys of whom I knew nothing. One of the best things about this book is the wealth of lesser known but superb graf talent that it throws onto an international stage. Some of these guys really deserve to be repped far more than they have been. A lot don't even have personal websites but clearly possess amazing skills that require viewing.
All in all, Street Fonts is a triumph and a nice, thick, heavyweight triumph at that. It's a big book and you definitely won't feel like you've been taken to the cleaners.
If I'm being completely objective, my only quibble is the small introduction to the writers. Their biogs were tiny or non existent and the info that fans can get on writers is not to be underestimated. A bit more would go a lot further. Still, it didn't ruin my enjoyment of this excellent book.
