In 1973, graffiti ran rampant in NYC, reaching its peak that summer. The work of black writers from the Bronx like SUPER COOL 223, RIFF 70 (WORM/CASH), and PHASE 2 defined the art which the kids called Top-to- Bottom or T-to-B, as it vertically covered a full subway car.

Some T-to-B pieces were so elaborate and complex that the New York Times hypothesized that they were a collaboration between professional artists and the graffiti writers. This book contains the photos from that heady era.

Hardcover: 192 pages.


Andrea Nelli, with a BA in Literature, is a painter, video artist and photographer based in Italy. He was 20 when he first went to NYC to photograph these urban codes.
