    I have been looking for some good graff books for a while now and I don't really know of any good ones.

    As of right now I have "The Art of Getting Up", but I am looking for some more modern and European graff books.

    im gunna let this ride. if u guys have any recomendations of books stick em in here.

    but, where u at in the world? we have a bunch of shit here u can buy online through bombing science in the online shop.

    if u cant get em online (which i would recommend u get them here because they have everything u could hope for.) look for some head shops that sell graff shit, or here we have a book store called "barnes and noble" they got some shit. i guess just keep your eyes open.

    freight train graffiti is an incredible book. Go get it! I learned so much from it and you can spend hours reading it.

    Graffiti World- good book, alot of diverse styles combined in one, and goes around the globe
    Graffiti Woman- not big on this book- alot of toy shit, theres like 5 good writers in this book, and the other half is street art
    Ma'claim:Finest Photorealistic Graffiti- honestly the sickest fuckin book i have ever touched, goes through alot of tutorials on painting as well as amazing photos (high quality)
    Montana Writer Team- decent book- they blur all the writers who aren't on the montana team out though, fucks up the production
    Stylefile:Best of Issues 1-5- this book was cool, but mostly euro shit, and i'm not too huge on euro
    Stylefile: Blackbook Session 2
    Stylefile: Blackbook Session 3
    ^^^^very good if book, no text, just blackbook pieces, contains artists like Daim, Seak, Enorm, Wow 123, Sewer, Atom, Mode, ect....

    thats all the books i can think of for now, if you need flicks of some of the shit in these books, pm me and i'll be glad to help
