Flip The Script - Book Preview


Expected on store shelves by March 2013 Distinctive hand style lettering is an essential skill for artists and designers. Deftly executed hand crafted letter forms are a nearly forgotten art in an age of endless free fonts. Graffiti is one of the last reservoirs of highly refined, well practiced penmanship. The most reviled and persecuted form of Graffiti, the tag, is seldom appreciated for the raw beauty of its skeletal letter forms. Most tags are removed immediately, and thus the casual viewer seldom has a chance to discern the difference between entry level and advanced hand styles. The most reviled and persecuted form of Graffiti, the Tag, is seldom appreciated for the raw beauty of its skeletal letter forms. Most tags are removed immediately, and thus the casual viewer seldom has a chance to discern the difference between entry level and advanced hand styles. Within the pages of Flip the Script, author Christian Acker has systematically analyzed a cross section of American graffiti hand styles, contextualizing the work of graffiti writers from around the United States. Acker presents the various lettering samples in a clean organized format, giving the material a proper, formal treatment evoking classic typography books. 224 pages, Hardcover, 8 ̋ x 10.5 ̋ (178 x 229 mm) 100s of 2-color illustrations, English ISBN: 978-1-58423-460-9 List price: $35.00

HD - Rhymin (Prod. Herring Franky)


Shout out to this young blood HD. I could see this becoming the new thing with these youngsters being inspired by the Joey Bada$$'s and Odd Future skateboarder type culture and...THANK GOD!!! I would love it if all of hip hop culture in general started going in this direction instead of the whole look how rich I am before Im even rich type of stuff that I keep hearing.  Keep it up young homie.... I like where this is going. Peace and Respect.  -SERRINGE
