Subway Art @ Revolution Books

As expected, the Subway Art 25th Anniversary edition book signing was a huge success for my friend Henry Chalfant, his co-author Martha Cooper, and, perhaps most importantly, Revolution Books. They are in trouble, and may have to shut their irreverent doors if we don’t  support them. While it’s true that we’re all trying to stay afloat in these challenging economic currents, there are ways we can still help: attend an event there; throw a fundraiser;  throw your book party there; donate a few dollars; tell your friends and coworkers about the store; blog it. Whether you agree with their mission or not, one thing’s for sure: what makes New York City so dynamic is the motley crew of citizens that contribute to its ebb and flow. Check out these flicks, below. The ones by Joe Conzo are being published with his permission.
