I hate graffiti! I think it’s vandalism or worse, but I’m almost persuaded by Mailer’s prose and Naar’s photos to admit it might be art. Anyone who is interested in what art might or might not be should read this book. It’s also a wonderful look at New York City in the 1970s, a reminder of the good times and the bad. I always refer to this book when I’m starting to believe I know what design and art are and can define them very clearly.
