Hulaseventy loves lists: Tag Town

by Hulaseventy

I was incredibly excited to see this interview with photographer Martha Cooper in Fecal Face. Her new book Tag Town chronicles the NYC graff tag scene in the early 80s, just as it was beginning.

I haven't seen the book yet but if the peeks that Fecal Face have given us are any indication at all, graff lovers are in for a rare treat.

And in the vein of tagging, I give you the most awesome graff-inspired lamp ever:


Made by Portland, Oregon artist Jake Rankin and available from Breeze Block Gallery. Seriously rad.
