Filled with 26 colorful marker drawings contributed by some of graffiti art's ultimate style masters, The ABCs of Style is part children's book, part adult art primer, tracking the evolution of graffiti letterforms. Each letter of the alphabet has been rendered by a different artist, with work from renowned writers Blade, Lee, Daze, Fuzz One, Haze, Jester, Doc, Ces, Cey, Trike, Part, Reas, Wane, SP, Keo, Queen Andrea and many others. Their styles range from early Bubble and Stick styles all the way to Wild style and beyond. But despite all these previously unseen original works, this book is not only for graffiti aficionados and art lovers. Both kids and parents will appreciate the book's rhythmic, happy verse that concludes with a gentle exhortation to rest. As appropriate on a coffee table as on a bunk bed, The ABCs of Style is truly art for everyone.

A is for Apple, Asia, & Air.
B is for Basketball, Baby, & Bear.
C is for Cat, as everyone knows,
And D is for Dog, 'cause that's how it goes…

So begins The ABCs of Style: A Graffiti Alphabet, the new children's abecedary penned by old-school writers Blade, Bio, Ces, Cey, Chino Byi, Daze, Dondi, Doc TC5, Fuzz One, Haze, Jester, Keo, Lee, Nicer, Part, Queen Andrea, Beas, Revolt, SP One, Stem, Team, Trike, Wane Cod and Web. Authored by Dana James of Testify Books and edited by graffiti artist and historian David Villorente, The ABCs of Style has been called "a Baby Einstein-like book for the streetwise set" by The New Yorker
