A kind of Manifesto of New York Writing culture, written and edited by Phase 2 (1955 - 2019).
"First of its kind. A different look at the technical aspects of Writing, its primary causes, the various effects, and after effects. In forcing on its beginnings in NYC, the book examines the blueprint and links that has provided the extensive traditional chain upheld and regarded as "STYLE". A history and analysis from those who have lived and made this movement what it is today. The book's photo documentation spans three decades (70's, 80's, 90's) and consists of rare gems, mostly by writers themselves. Together they reveal a living archive that makes for an unprecedented incredible pictorial of the writers' as well as the culture's growth."
