Authentic first–person accounts from the graffiti artists whose creative genius fueled the movement from its beginning in late 1970s and early 1980s New York Late 1970s New York City was bankrupt and its streets dirty and dangerous. But thecity had a wild, raw energy that made it the crucible for the birth of rap culture and graffiti. Graffiti writers worked in extremely tough conditions: uncollected garbage, darkness, cramped spaces, and the constant threat of police raids, assault by security staff and attacks by rival crews. It was not unlike practicing performance art in a war zone. Yet during the fertile years of the late 1970s and 1980s they evolved their art from stylized signatures to full-blown Technicolor dreamscapes. Henry Chalfant created panoramic images of painted trains by photographing overlapping shots along the train’s length. It took time to earn the writers’ trust andrespect, but Chalfant became their revered confidant and with Tony Silver went on to produce the classic documentary film Style Wars (1983). Through a series of interviews conducted by Sacha Jenkins, we hear the voices of these characters of old New York. Quite a few of the original writers are no longer with us, but those who have survived have continued to push the envelope as artists and individuals in a new millennium.The stories they tell, included here alongside iconic, raw photographs of their work, will enthrall graffiti fans everywhere.

"New York City in the 1860s was a mess- crowded, disgusting, filled with garbage. You see, way back in 1860, there were no subways, just cobblestone streets. That is, until Alfred Ely Beach had the idea for a fan-powered train that would travel underground. On February 26, 1870, after fifty-eight days of drilling and painting and plastering, Beach unveiled his masterpiece-and throngs of visitors took turns swooshing down the track. The Secret Subwaywill wow readers, just as Beach's underground train wowed riders over a century ago."

Find your way around the New York City subway! This book introduces the idea of graphic design as a way to solve problems and challenges, such as creating a map that can be understood by all New Yorkers and out-of-towners. Author and illustrator Emiliano Ponzi uses depictions of trains, subway stations, and the NYC skyline to create a love letter to the city. A groundbreaking work of information design, the subway map, designed by Massimo Vignelli, is an iconic work used by over a billion people every year. The Museum of Modern Art acquired the original 1972 diagram, along with the 1970 graphics standards manual Vignelli created for signage and station information, in 2004. The map is intimately tied to MoMA s history, as it was a MoMA curator, Mildred Constantine, who recommended that New York City s Metropolitan Transit Authority commission the map from the Italian designer.
