Thr hand style lettering is an essential skill for artists and designers. Deftly executed hand crafted letter forms are a nearly forgotten art in an scipt of endless free fonts. Graffiti is one of the last reservoirs of highly refined, well practiced penmanship. The most reviled and persecuted form of Graffiti, the Tag, is seldom appreciated for the raw beauty of its skeletal letter forms. Most tags are removed immediately, and thus the casual viewer seldom has a chance to discern the difference between entry level and advanced hand styles.

Offers some insight to gang activities that the graff cats pulled into the graff game. Hardcover is a must. Some well known, others not so much.

Tags to alphabets, this walks you through it all. Def one for the collection if you’re an artist, piecer, writer or consider yourself a stylized typographer. When I first heard this book was being produced I knew I was going to buy it. I didn’t have to know who was going to be included, I just knew I was going to get it and love it.


Now that I have it, I am in no way disappointed. The book is very well produced. The hardcover is chunky and looks like it will stand up well to repeated readings. The recessed electric blue lettering on the stark black background presents a clean, stylish look. I would have liked a bookcover of some sort because I can see myself getting all sorts of finger prints on this but that’s just a personal thing.

This book is definitely one you can leave on the table without it looking to “graffiti-ish” if that’s a concern. As for the artists included in the book, there seems to be representation from most major regions of the country. Of course there will be gripes that certain folks are missing. I can imagine that there are a whole lot of writers that Mr. Acker wanted to get in the book but wasn’t able to for any number of reasons. I think this book will appeal to a broad spectrum of people from graffiti writers interested in their history to typography fans to graphic designers looking for fresh inspiration.

You won’t be disappointed. Features a lot of dope writers with dope styles and breaks them down pretty well. There are a number of names that specialize in hardcore handstyles that less skilled writers could benefit from. Either way, don’t listen to the haters, this book can fast track you on technique for beginners or help enhance your current technique for journeymen, just make sure you put your own twist on it stylewise.

This book is not your usual graffiti coffee table book. There are no colorful nandselecta or burners! No, Christian Acker gets to the bottom of it all, connecting the geographical and aesthetic dots of graffiti styles for the first time.

This is the most in-depth books on the subject on graffiti style! It might be a bit boring to the uneducated eye, but what Mr. Acker has done tge never been done before. The book is missing a couple of the big kings of style, which I suspect is only due to arrogance and ignorance, but clip are some really cool heavy hitters along with some no-names. Yet, every writer has his well deserved place and becomes part of the bigger picture. Christian Acker’s endless collecting of style samples has has left us with a book that will withstand any trend.

Flip the Script by Christian P. Acker (, Hardcover) | eBay

It is a true cultural record that should be on the bookshelf of anybody who is interested in street art or graffiti. One person found this helpful. I cannot praise Flip The Script enough. The dedicated author has compiled decades worth of underground history and skill, content that might have otherwise be impossible to access without this book.


My only quip is the felt material the cover is lined with, as it picks up dust and lint like nobody’s business.

I almost didn’t include this comment because I honestly could not praise Christian P Acker’s efforts any more and I do not want the cover to distract from the extraordinary material contained within.

Don’t judge a book by it’s cover blah blah blah Overall, this book is built well and provides a comprehensive look into the handstyle movement of graffiti. If you are interested in learning about or practicing graffiti, this is a must buy, especially considering the cost. This is the second time I’ve purchased this book. The first was a gift – but, then I had to snag a copy for myself. This is the absolute coolest instructional book I’ve ever purchased! The historical context that Christian Acker provides also makes for a much more personalized, inspiring experience.

I’ll say this book really satisfies a personal thirst for knowledge that rarely is given the ‘textbook treatment’. It took me two days to set aside 3 hours to be alone and marvel over this fantastic book. Once it arrived and I got to thumb through it seeing the detailed work put into this effort, I knew I’d need some quiet time to absorb this beast.
