Friday Night Flicks: Book of Letters and All You Need To Know About Graffiti Is In This Book

That’s a very long title for two of the shortest ever Friday Night Flicks. Both videos are demonstrations of unusual books. The first, Book of Letters, was designed by Kristy Higby as a retirement present.

 

 

I will let the creator of All You Need To Know About Graffiti Is In This Book speak for himself:

I have been asked by a book publisher to write few pages to explain to teenagers how to practice graffiti. After hours and hours I came to the conclusion there was nothing to teach about it except providing the tool to do it. The new generation needs to discover it by practising it instead of reading lessons. Rather than a long sterile speech debating on the good or bad vertues I created my own book to share my point of view through a conceptual message.

 

 

Since those videos were so brief, you might have a few minutes to spare this weekend to watch one more: Graphic Fury’s chalk lettering for Au Loup in Paris.
