Video Book Review: Old School & New School — Two Views on Skateboarding


So, hopefully this sort of update keeps you engaged in the project. It’s helpful to me to talk about what I’m thinking in terms of the book design for the project. I’m dividing things up a bit and first looking at photography books that just happen to have as their subject skateboarding. There’s more out there than I thought.

This time I’m looking at a limited edition book called “Old School & New School: Two Views of Skateboard Photography” by Barbara Wüllenweber and Alexander Basile. It’s okay. I like that it came with a couple of loose photographs — that’s sort of a nice touch. The design and layout leave a bit to be desired, with some full-spreads decimated by the way the book is bound.

For those of you who are expecting prints, there’ll be more news on that soon. I’m in the midst of selecting photos that I’ll use for those rewards.

Thanks again for your support!
