5.0 out of 5 stars Lavelle's Gallery - Subway art review 10 July 2008
Format:Paperback
For those who appreciate graffiti for the art form that it is, and the history behind the early days of subway art this book is the bible...with cracking images from two hands on photojournalists who were able to work alongside the teams of the 70's and 80's.

I cant recommend the book enough...great photography, snappy, informative text, we at Lavelle's gallery - [...] - appreciate the documentary that this book provides

Great read!
