Street Writers : A Guided tour of Chicano Graffiti

Gusmano Cesaretti


Edition : First / Los Angeles / Acrobat Books / 1975 / Softcover. / VG+
Small 4to. Unpaginated (ca 120pp). Printed wraps as issued. Numerous Black and white plates. Text in English. A little rubbing to covers.

Exeedingly scarce book which is a first of two sorts- one of the first graffiti books, and quite possibly the first book to document chicano street culture. Cesaretti’s work is stunning, high contrast and beautifully composed, and documents Whittier and East L.A. graffiti, lowriders, gangs and cholos. The real deal.
