Appears I got a little shine on the cover of the new zine “SubCulture #1: Can It”. Good looks.
From their site:
SubCulture #1: Can It
Introducing SubCulture, a new zine about art and culture in the subway. The first issue, entitled “Can It,” is all about the old style trash cans in the subway. These cans acted as a canvas for graffiti writers up until they were discontinued in 2011.
The handmade zine includes 32 pages (including the color cover) of images and text on the topic. Each one comes with the following: one numbered copy of SubCulture #1: Can It, an unique envelope that mimics the design of the subway trash cans complete with a mini CAN IT FOR A GREENER PLANET sticker and handmade mini stickers by over 15 different artists, a Subway Art Blog business card and vinyl sticker, and at least one other assorted sticker.
The zine is limited to an edition of 100. SubCulture is now available at the Subway Art Blog store at: subwayart.bigcartel.com

New zine out from CarnageNYC. Thick 60 pages of pics and interviews, stickers, and dope silkscreened covers (frameable pieces themselves). Check em out…
“Stuck” No 1 consists of 60 pages of previously unreleased photos of some of the sickest NYC stickers plus interviews with BASER, ALONE, MINUS and CRASTY. Each copy of the zine comes with three hand-written stickers, along with a full set of four vinyl stickers made exclusively for this issue. The cover image was screenprinted over layers of stickers and up to four colors of paint, giving each cover a completely unique look and texture. (Note: a very small number of covers are available in white ink).
Stuck is limited to 300 hand-numbered copies.

This book came out about a month ago. I meant to do a comprehensive review on it, but with about 400 PAGES a proper review would take months for me to write. And I don’t want to reveal too much of the book. Here’s a small preview…
First, the cover. Take off that paper one that it came with and reveal the (MUCH doper, in my opinion) vintage spraycans cover hiding under there.
Then get ready for a Graffiti History 101 on the history of over 25 cities. Just check out the Contents pages!..
Of course any history book is bound to overemphasize certain people and events and omits others (REZENT! LOST!). However the Boston and New York sections are pretty accurate and no way as biased as it could have been. I’m not so knowledgeable on the other cities, but hopefully they are just as accurate.
In addition to the individual city chapters, there’s profiles on some very influential writers such as Cost, Revs, Twist, and others.
Then to top things off, they’ve even included info on spraypaint, blackbooks, tagbanging, freights, the list goes on..
I was very pleased to see the Boston chapter giving just credit to the X-men, Jayrock, Remote, and of course the much justified write up and photos of Alert (OD. KBN. 5AV) and Ryze (5AV KBN.) in the Boston chapter.
The OD crew gets their mention. I get a mention and some quote. And a photo (not one I would have chosen.. guess I should have submitted some of my own.) of an “AN” I did on the Porter MBTA tracks in 1993. Yup, the “Star Market wall”.
They also go on in the Denver section about Alert and Hel (OD KBN) relocating out there and hooking up with SWS.
Overall, this is a great book that will undoubtedly (like it or not) be used as THE first and foremost account of 20th century graffiti and will be studied for centuries to come. Grab a copy while you can still get an original first pressing.
*** Oh yeah, BIG THANKS to Caleb and Roger for hooking up me up with a copy of the book!!

“For nearly a decade I’ve photographed hand drawn tags and street art on stickers. My best finds are now published in a little book called Name Tagging. It launches this Saturday at the OBEY pop up store at 151 Orchard Street from 5:00pm-8:00pm. If you come with stickers, you may be able to trade with some of the elusive artists featured in the book.” - Martha Cooper
If you’re in NY this weekend, check out the book release and meet the photographer, Martha Cooper.
