BROKEN WINDOWS: Graffiti NYC in good company!

Thanks to Audrey at MAS for the pic! Art Books section at the Barnes & Noble on 7th Ave in Brooklyn...
Now in HARDCOVER edition with 70 more pages and previously unpublished images. Full of vibrant, energetic and explosive full-color images, this wide format -page book gives voice to an art movement that is largely undocumented and often misunderstood. It features extensive graffiti artist interviews, covering topics such as tags, styles, motivation, crews, authorities, and the future of graffiti art. Five oversized fold-out gatefolds present some of the largest productions painted in NYC since 1996.  254 pages 5 gatefolds Hardcover $39.95

The critics on BROKEN WINDOWS:

Broken Windows documents the Giuliani-era explosion of "productions"?the usually legal, multi-writer pieces that began appearing on store gates, buildings, walls, and train tunnels?and "bombs," the illegal, controversial signatures that seemed to swarm the city. Like Chalfant and Cooper's Subway Art, Broken Windows becomes a salute to the graf-writers' visual genius.
