Over 100 interviews and alphabets by American writers, spanning from the 1960s to the 2010s
In Flip the Script, author Christian Acker spent 10 years gathering a wide range of hand styles, contextualising the lettering work of graffiti writers from around the United States. Through interviews and writing samples, Flip the Script offers deep access to some of the most talented writers in the United States. These hand style heavyweights share their thoughts on subjects such as how they developed their talent and how regional graffiti dialects differ. Acker presents the material in a clean, structured layout, evoking classic typography and calligraphy books. This revised, updated edition remains as relevant as ever.
