  • Summary: The volume contains 143 works on paper by leading Los Angeles graffiti and tattoo artists. Inspired by Johann Heinrich Gruber's 17th-century liber amicorum (or "book of friends") and the black sketch books (or "piecebooks") that many street artists carry with them and inscribe for each other, the LA Liber Amicorum showcases the hand-styles of more than 100 "writers." Originally created on loose sheets of paper, the artworks by rival crews of street artists were bound into a single Los Angeles "book of friends" that brings together the unique letter-forms, characters and themes that represent the regionally and culturally diverse landscape of graffiti and tattoo art in Los Angeles.
