BLADE book release, “Blade - King of Kings” and signing. From 1972 BLADE has ruled the New York graffiti scene, assuming the title King of Kings. He quickly became the No.1 Subway Train painter, and maintained his status through the “Die Hard” era when the NYC authorities severely clamped down on Graffiti. With the release of his brand new book, “Blade - King of Kings”, Blade’s reputation as one of the greatest artists of his generation is consolidated even further. Blade himself says :”It is a tremendous honour to have a book dedicated to my career, celebrating my contribution to graffiti and art, available  now, in my own lifetime.” We invite you to come and secure a copy of this EXTREMELY LIMITED EDITION (only 1000 Copies printed) beautifully illustrated full colour reference volume.
