First edition, first printing. Signed by the author. Publisher's original laminated boards. Illustrated in colour throughout. A lovely fine copy of the very limited first edition of 60 copies. (The book is now into a second edition).
Signed by the author in black ink on the front blank endpaper. The Subconscious Art of Graffiti Removal, a film produced by Matt McCormick and based on the work of Avalon Kalin, won Grand Prize for Short Film at the San Francisco International Film Festival in 2002. Narrated by Miranda July, it was heralded by Matthew Higgs of White Columns as one of the best artworks of the year in ARTFORUM magazine. For the first time, Kalin's original research and photographs of what he calls "graffiti-masking", and his writings on the aesthetics and context of this ever expanding art-form, are published here. The book includes his original zine of photographs as well as 104 more of his recent images in full color – giving us an invaluable glimpse into one of the most important "subconscious-art" movements of our time.
