Description

An irresistible collection of artwork and 140 peelable stickers from iconic brands including Chocolate, Almost and HUF, this is a must-have for skate fans.

Skateboarding is currently enjoying a resurgence in popularity, and stickers remain at the heart of its vibrant – and often anarchic – culture. Now an Olympic sport, skateboarding will reach a whole new demographic and as Packard Fancher wonders in his foreword:

Will that change it? It’s an exciting, if slightly concerning thought – traditionally we haven’t liked outsiders meddling in our affairs. But rest assured: skateboarding, like graffiti and street art, will always attract outsiders, the independent kids who are drawn to the counterculture. These kids will still become obsessed with this useless wooden toy, whether it’s cool or not. They’ll love the graphics, the style, the vibe, the heroes, and the villains, and they’ll continue to skate until their bodies can’t take it anymore. They’ll develop a network of friends that will last a lifetime, and they’ll discover a ton about themselves, while shaping their own identity in the world. It’ll be the same as it ever was!

Featuring interviews, photographs and both new and highly collectable classic stickers, this timely collection is perfect for skateboard fans of all ages.
