"Compiled by legendary hip-hop designer Cey Adams, DEFinition: The Art and Design of Hip-Hop is the first comprehensive anthology published in the name of the genre during the last thirty-five years. This landmark volume celebrates a culture that has made its mark on everything from fine art to the label on a bottle of Hawaiian Punch, including fashion, automobiles, movies, television, advertising, and sneakers. It highlights the careers and artwork of such crucial hip-hop elders as Lady Pink, Haze, Run-DMC, Dapper Dan, Buddy Esquire, Spike Lee, and Snoop Dogg as well as contemporary giants like Kehinde Wiley, Mr. Cartoon, Shepard Fairey, Dalek, Mike Thompson, Jor One, and Claw Money, and dozens of others, DEFinition examines the evolution of hip-hop as a visual phenomenon with the historical depth that only an insider like Cey Adams can provide. Featuring more than 200 stunning photographs and illustrations as well as compelling essays by some of hip-hop's most seasoned voices, DEFinition illuminates the culture in a form that speaks to aficionados and newcomers alike." - Publisher.

Keith Haring: Heaven and Hell
Ostfildern-Ruit, Germany Hatje Cantz Publishers 2002 3775710825 / 9783775710824 1st Hardcover Fine Fine Collectible 4to - over 9" - 12" tall 
200 pp., illus. (some col.), ports., biblio.; 29 cm. Catalogue of an exhibition held at the Museum fr Neue Kunst, ZKM Karlsruhe, Sept. 23, 2001-Jan. 6, 2002, and at the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam, May 10-July 21, 2002. AS NEW. Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. OVERSIZE! No priority/air, except by special arrangement. "The American painter and sculptor Keith Haring, who died in 1990, was undisputedly one of the most popular artists in the 20th century. More than ten years after his death, his output is still as important to younger artists as it is to the wider public. Therefore it seems all the more essential to present a profile of the less well-known Haring - looking beyond the Haring of the ubiquitous, world-famous cheerful matchstick figures. From his earliest days as an artist, Haring engaged with the meaning of death, suffering and violence, with the importance of religion and the afterlife in our own lives. It is only against this background that Keith Haring's positive, life-affirming 'icons' can be properly understood. The main focus of this publication is on paintings and drawings from the artist's estate - some never previously published - and the rarely seen large-format pictures and wall hangings on the theme of Heaven and Hell." - Publisher.

Milan Charta 1999 8881582392 / 9788881582396 Paperback Very Good Exhibition Catalogue 4to - over 9" - 12" tall 
lxxi, 205 pp., illus. (some col.), bib. notes; 29 cm. Contributions by: Luca Marenzi, Keith Haring, Francesco Clemente, Bruno Bischofberger; interviews by Henry Geldzahler, Demosthenes Davvetas, Isabelle Graw, Lisa Licitra Ponti. Text in English and Italian. Catalogue of an exhibition held in the Civico Museo Revoltella, Trieste, May 15 to September 15, 1999. Near fine. Tight, clean copy. Small remainder mark/tail edge, near spine. OVERSIZE! No priority/air, except by special arrangement. "Like American icons James Dean and Jimi Hendrix, Basquiat (1960-1988) was insecure, incredibly talented and died tragically young. Basquiat, who twisted every aesthetic convention, became a living legend, hailed like a rock star, acclaimed by critics, courted by gallerists from around the world. He was close to many of the pivotal artists of his generation, such as Keith Haring and Francesco Clemente, and Andy Warhol, with whom Basquiat created many memorable collaborative works. Basquiat managed to make himself heard above the racket of the neurotic art world of the 80s, by depicting the energy, violence and diversity of the world around him. He was able to integrate Afro-American history, the politics of rap, the language of jazz and his own rebellious nature into an extraordinary visual language, and left behind a body of work that is astonishing for its vastness, its diversity of themes, usage of materials and the quality of the painting. Basquiat's paintings function as narratives for life events, cultural critiques and mental states. His apparently disordered, wild work is in reality surprisingly balanced. This book brings together over 110 of his most remarkable works, including collaborations with Warhol and Clemente." - Publisher.

Atglen, PA Schiffer Publishing 2011 0764337238 / 9780764337239 1st Hardcover Fine Collectible Oblong 
176 pp., col. illus.; 23 x 29 cm. Firm binding, clean inside copy. OVERSIZE! No priority/international, except by special arrangement. Profusely illustrated. "See the New York City transit system at a time the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) has tried hard to forget. In the early '80s, graffiti writer Paul Cavalieri, who writes 'CAVS,' was drawn to the colorful tags on trains. He started learning train schedules so he could snap works by many writers of the time. This is a compilation of subway graffiti from 1983 to 1989, when the MTA announced that its fleet was entirely graffiti-free. More than 325 color photos capture everything from motion-bombed train interiors riddled with pilot marker tags to epic works covering whole exteriors, top to bottom. Artists tell their tales of adventure throughout and reminisce about working on live third rails, navigating the complex subway system to find their works, and witnessing graffiti's gradual disappearance from the trains. This book presents a nostalgic look at 1980s New York City and the street artists that gave it soul." - Publisher.

Keith Haring, 1958-1990: A Life for Art
Cologne Benedikt Taschen Verlag 2004 382283145X / 9783822831458 Paperback Very Good 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
96 pp., illus. (chiefly col.), biblio.; 23 cm. English Edition. "By the time of his death from AIDS at the age of 31, Keith Haring (1958-1990) was already a wildly successful and popular artist. Haring's original and instantly recognizable style, full of thick black lines, bold colors, and graffiti-inspired cartoon-like figures, won him the appreciation of both the art world and the general public; his work appeared simultaneously on T-shirts, gallery walls, and public murals. In 1986, Haring founded Pop Shop, a boutique in New York's SoHo selling Haring-designed memorabilia, to benefit charities and help bring his work closer to the public and especially street kids, with whom he never lost contact. / Alexandra Kolossa studied art history, German literature, and business administration in Trier. She took her doctorate in 2003. Since 1998 she has been a freelance author and contemporary art exhibition curator. She lives and works in Dren." - Publisher.

Keith Haring Journals
New York Viking; Penguin 1996 0670847747 / 9780670847747 1st Hardcover Fine Very Good Collectible 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
xxxii, 303 pp., illus., biblio., index; 25 cm. Tight, clean copy. Dust jacket, with a creased front flap, protected in a mylar book cover. A near-fine copy of the first printing. "Renowned in his lifetime for spontaneous, hands-on, archetypal imagery, Keith Haring was embraced by a street audience while also winning the respect of the art establishment during his prolific and regrettably brief ten-year career. His journals, kept from his teens until just before his death from AIDS in 1990, dispel any lingering notion of him as a 'naive' artist, and reveal him to be a conscientious, serious, visionary artist, committed to extending the boundaries of art. Here in his own words -- illustrated with previously unpublished drawings from his notebooks -- is Haring's record of the evolution of his work, from on-the-road notes and early ideas about art, to School of Visual Arts experiments, to early subway chalk drawings, to full-scale color canvases, outdoor murals, collaborative public art projects with children, massive suburban steel sculptures and international exhibitions. The journals track his emergence into world fame as a pop icon, his hectic and colorful social life in the New York scene, and his friendships with Andy Warhol, Timothy Leary, William S. Burroughs and other writers, musicians and artists. Haring documents his efforts to bring art and everyday life closer through the controversial Pop Shop, which remains a vital legacy of his work. Later entries show him expanding his understanding of what the role of the artist should be, trying to deal with his entry into the commercial world and pop culture, and coming to accept his impending death from AIDS: 'Work is all I have and art is more important than life.' Robert Farris Thompson's lively and provocative introduction situates Haring in relation to the art historical establishment, and shows the intellectual underpinnings of his work, including the influence of such painters as Leger, Alechinsky, Dubuffet, Stella, Pollock, and Olitski." - Publisher.
