Hardcover Book Disposable - A History of Skateboard Art Sean Cliver
Longtime skateboard artist Sean Cliver put together this staggering survey of over 1,000 skateboard graphics from the early ’80s to the start of the ’00s, creating an indispensable insiders’ history as he did so. Alongside his own history, Sean has assembled a wealth of recollections and stories from prominent artists and skateboarders such as Andy Howell, Barry McGee, Ed Templeton, Steve Caballero, and Tony Hawk. The end result is a fascinating historical account of art in the skateboard subculture, as told by those directly involved with shaping its legendary creative face.
The boards within The Disposable Skateboard Bible are broken down by decade: (beginning in 1960) documenting some of the earliest deck designs; through the 70s and the game-changing advent of urethane wheels; the 80s with its ups and downs, big decks and mass-market popularity; finally the graphic chaos of the 90s through the turn of the millennium.
