The first book to examine figurative elements in graffiti art, 'Mascots & Mugs' traces the history of key characters from the earliest examples by writers such as Stay High, Cliff 170 and Blade, to later masters such as Mode 2, Doze and Tack. Drawing inspiration from Saturday morning television, printed comic strips and the dense urban landscape itself, these graffiti writers have created numerous worlds with brilliant and outlandish visual characters. Filled with never-before-published photographs and rare artist interviews, this chronologically sequenced graffiti bible is a must have reference for anyone interested in urban street art.
