THE EXCHANGE BOOK PREVIEW














































































On The Run Book # 8: THE EXCHANGE

Acclaimed graffiti collective The Exchange has created a stir with a dynamic style dialogue. The idea behind the project is for members to pair up, trade sketches and rock diverse styles outside of their usual comfort zones. These experiments are then posted online to be applauded and critiqued by members. A verbal and visual style assault from some of the finest active writers across the globe: EWOK, REVOK, RIME, PERSUE, YES 2, POSE, STAE 2, SNOW, BATES, SERCH, POET, KACAO 77, SCOTTY 76, ASKEW (just to name a few). This book is jam-packed with expert style antics. You might want to get your sketchbooks out and start taking notes.
