Scarce private press book documenting the first attempts (by outsiders that is) to decipher Chicano and Chicana street writers in L.A., which at the time of printing was the only place where it could be found. Both authors have been respectful, and really done their homework, talking to a lot of people involved (much to their bemusement) to write an informed history and overview of a previously undocumented, and very much local street phenomenon.
