What happens when a group of highly regarded international graffiti writers with distinct flavor and diverse interests teams up- sparks fly! Acclaimed graffiti collective The Exchange has created a stir with a dynamic and up-to-speed online style dialogue. Rime (Jersey Joe) got the ball rolling back in 2005 with just six participants from the US, and today the project boasts thirty-three members worldwide. The idea is that members pair up and trade letter styles. The challenge for all involved is to rock diverse styles outside their usual comfort zones. Members rise to the occasion and push past limitations. The results of these experiments are posted online to be applauded and critiqued by members. A verbal and visual style assault from some of the finest active writers across the globe: Ewok, Revok, Rime, Persue, Yes2, Pose, Stae2, Snow, Bates, Serch, Poet, kacao77, Scotty76, Askew (just to name a few). Like the website, the book is jampacked with expert style antics. You might want to get your sketchbooks out and start taking notes.
