Riktigt fresh bok i typisk amerikansk stil, vilket innebär mycket bilder, snygga foton och lyxigt tryck. Robert Morrissey, mer känd som Desa (MTA) en av New Yorks mest aktiva bombare, men även en av de som råkat i mest trubbel. Som 19 åring dömdes han till 1-3år fängelse för graffiti, detta fick honom dock inte att sluta. Highlights är ensama i Sverige(och troligtvis Europa om boken) och har endast 10 exemplar totalt (webben och butikerna) så det är först till kvarn som gäller!
Info in english:
Published by AKA Projects, and designed by the ALSO KNOWN AS Crew, comes this all out assault to the senses. 'Million Dollar Vandal' is the uncensored story about the life and times of Brooklyn's prodigal son, Desa MTA. For the first time, we get inside Desa's head and his story gets officially told from the beginning. Exceptionally well written, this book chronicles in detail how Desa became the symbol of New York's war on graffiti during the 1990's, and details the repurcussions that came with being the NYC Vandal Squads public enemy number one. It's also an intimate look into his personal life, and reflects back on the milestones that formed the person he is today, including the death of VE (RIP), his near-fatal accident, and his tumultuous graffiti career being pursued by the Vandal Squad, and state prosecuters.
'Million Dollar Vandal' is full of cinematic-type landscape photos, exclusive action shots, and personal portraits that range from trains to tunnels, platforms to rooftops, and from the streets of New York to the house he lives in. Beautifully photographed and also designed by ALSO KNOWN AS, this book has all the attention to detail and amazing printing techniques you've come to expect out of that crew including fluroescent and metallic inks, amazing packaging, and enough eye candy to keep this book on your coffe table permenantly. A definite must have!
