New Book Opening tonight
The prolific finger-on-the-street-pulse Ms. Cooper, ever humble, passed this along to us saying, “I have a little Name Tagging book launch on Orchard Street.” Okay, we’ll def be there.
And you’ve probably read all this from the other “copy-n-paste” blogs, but here we go:
Date: Saturday, May 15, 2010
Time: 5:00pm – 8:00pm
Location: Obey Pop Up Store NYC
Street: 151 Orchard Street
City/Town: New York, NY
Join Mark Batty Publisher, Martha Cooper and OBEY for a legendary party celebrating a legend herself – and her new book: NAME TAGGING (http://bit.ly/aD0cUH).
There will be books to buy and be signed, lots of free Stella Artois BEER, MUSIC from DB of Breakbeat Science and some well-known faces in the world of URBAN ART.
This is a PREVIEW PARTY of the book even before it’s launched or in stores – so make sure you grab yourself one of the limited copies at the event and get it signed by Martha. We’ll also have copies of her other MBP book, “Going Postal” on-hand.

ABOUT THE BOOK:
In NAME TAGGING (http://bit.ly/aD0cUH), graffiti photography legend Martha Cooper (http://bit.ly/JF2V8) presents a dizzying array of “Hello My Name Is” stickers adorned with tags, the origin of graffiti and today’s street art cultures.
Cooper’s introduction, artist interviews and photographs make clear how artists famed and anonymous take advantage of the accessibility and practicality of name tag stickers. From CLAW MONEY and NECK FACE to TWIST, SURE, FAUST, COSBE and many, many more, Cooper’s camera has captured the artistry and audacity of these artists and their distinctive tags.
NAME TAGGING recognizes the variety and innovation of tags, crediting the form’s history while demonstrating how old school methods breed some of today’s most exciting graffiti.
