Graffiti is one of the last strongholds of highly refined, well practiced penmanship in our contemporary culture. The tag, that most reviled and persecuted form of graffiti, is seldom appreciated for its raw beauty and skeletal letter forms. The casual viewer seldom discerns the difference between entry level and advanced hand styles. Within the pages of FLIP THE SCRIPT, author Christian Acker systematically analyzes historic hand styles by collecting the work of writers from the most influential American cities and searching for the origins and commonalities that connect people, places and times.
