Graffiti Asia

The book was dropped may 2010. I was fortunate enough to cross paths with the authors in Jakarta on one of there last nights in Asia. Totally by random as I was meeting up with writers Darbotz, Zany13, and Nsane5, from Indonesia and these guys were rolling with them.
Now I have heard lots of hate thrown towards this book as it does not represent the Asian graffiti culture as properly as everybody wants it to. Since I met these guys and after going through the book I think they did a decent job with the limited time they spent in asia collecting material and with the writers they met. That being said I think there are alot of holes and lack of information on alot of writers that needed more or some credit at all. The book would have needed to be twice the size and double the budget if it wanted to accomplish this!!
Overall it is a good buy and does give you a good overview of graffiti in asia. Due to the fast and ever growing scene out there this book will be the first of many to come of its kind!!
