One of Europes’ first magazines was On The Run from Germany. The magazine was released in March, May, September 1991 and June 1992. In Oct. 1997 they released their first in a row of series OTR Blackbooks. The format: glossy A5 (ca.) paperback publications featuring the works of just one graffiti writer. Vol. 1 was all about Jepsy TRD. In April 1998 Bates, in March 1999 a double issue about Seen (white cover and a gold cover edition). All editions of the OTR Blackbook series are highly collectable and therefore hard to get. So is this Bates edition!
From Here To Fame publishing continued the release of the Blackbook series in the mid/ late 2000’s with the likes of Sento, Part One, Logan, Zebster, Smash 137, Moas, How & Nosm, Ghost, Sabe, Faith 47 and, by popular demand another Jepsy.
