Yet another great graffiti book has hit the shelves. Public Wall Writing in Philadelphia captures graffiti in Philly through the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s.  The title pretty much sums it up.  The 96-page book of black and white photos explores the entire spectrum of messages and art that have defined the city that started it all. 

Public Wall Writing in Philadelphia is a book of photographs chronicling the history of wall writing in Philadelphia from the late 1960’s through the early 1980’s.  Images of SEPTA stations and platforms, gang corners and roll calls, anti-graffiti propaganda and buff-men, run-down neighborhoods and the xcitizens that inhabited them serve to paint a bleak yet timeless portrait of Philadelphia
