For 25 years, Supreme's skateboard collaborations have represented an iconic intersection between art and skate culture, ultimately birthing an entire culture of skateboard art. This book features original images of all decks, including ultra-rare and unreleased pieces such as the "LV" Cease-and-Desist series, the "Japan-only Jesus," and the Louis Vuitton x Supreme trunk, from the world's only complete collection, as well as "in-the-field" shots from noted photographers including Los Angeles-based @baariksgallery and Johannesburg's I See A Different You.
Exploring the history of Supreme's artistic collaborations, from pieces with now-legendary contemporary artists including Kaws, Damien Hirst, Takashi Murakami, Christopher Wool, Jeff Koons, and Richard Prince, as well as underground icons including Raymond Pettibon, Harmony Korine, and Larry Clark, Art on Deck contains original photography, artist interviews, and discussion from the design and fashion critic Byron Hawes.
