After about three years of researching, compiling, and editing, New York-based art curator Aaron Rose has finally realized his dream of publishing a comprehensive history of skateboard art.
Dysfunctional is a 210-page soft-back collection of some of the most notorious-and some obscure-images from skateboarding’s past and present. Magazine spreads, photos, ads, board graphics, zines, and anything to which skateboarders have laid their talents were game for this brash collage of skateboarding-inspired works. The book is published by London’s Booth Clibborn Editions, and is available through major book chains, museum stores, and web dealers like amazon.com for about 30 bucks.
