UPPER PLAYGROUND in association with HAND SELECTA and Gingko Press is pleased to announce the release of
FLIP THE SCRIPT | A Guidebook for Aspiring Vandals & Typographers
by Christian P. Acker
Due to drop in stores March of this year, this cloth-bound 224pg hard cover book carefully deconstructs American tagging styles with scientific precision. Christian Acker pays homage to the unsung heroes of Graffiti Halls of Fame, spending years collecting data and interviewing artists about the history and evolution of street ‘calligraphy’ in the United States. Pages are adorned with 1st person quotations that give context and background as each artist breaks down their own hand-style from A to Z.
Check out the preview video and visit HANDSELECTA for more information.
