Billy Schon's new book 'Fresh Paint NYC' (on Schiffer Books) is set to hit the streets in a couple of weeks. Billy has busted some serious ass to document some of the finest crews around. Fresh Paint NYC is hardbound & only 35-bucks...that's about the same price as 2 Venti-Lattes at Starbucks!

Check out Fresh Paint's Blog: http://freshpaintnyc.blogspot.com

"Over 400 eye-popping photos provide a decade-long tour of graffiti in New York City. Walls, trucks, and subway cars are featured with graffiti by the crews X-Men, KD, TNB, 156, RIS, AOK, TC-5, FAME CITY, COD, XTC, TFP, MCI, IF, DYM, 718, TD4, SMART, TATS CRU, FLY-ID, GFR, AKB, and many more. Because New York City has made a concerted effort to remove graffiti from the city, the images captured here will never be seen again. Walls were repainted and some buildings were demolished, keeping graffiti crews working fast to keep ahead of the trend. The author worked even faster to capture their ephemeral efforts."
