    Product description

    Distinctive hand lettering is an essential skill for artists and designers. Deftly executed letter forms are a nearly forgotten art in an age of endless free fonts. Graffiti is one of the last reservoirs of highly refined, well practiced penmanship.

     

    Publisher Marketing:

    Graffiti remains one of the last reservoirs of well-practiced penmanship. A unique feature of this publication is its catalog of graffiti writers' complete alphabets. We expect the uninformed observer shall come to recognize these letters for their raw beauty and skeletal forms and that the educated reader will appreciate the thought that has gone into the organization of this book.

     

    In Flip the Script, author Christian Acker spent 10 years gathering a wide range of hand styles, contextualizing the lettering work of graffiti writers from around the United States. Through interviews and writing samples, Flip the Script offers deep access to some of the most talented writers in the country. These hand style heavyweights share their thoughts on subjects such as how they developed their talent and how the regional graffiti dialects differ. Acker presents the material in a clean, structured layout, evoking classic typography books. This revised, updated edition remains as relevant as ever.
