Carnage Issue 8 is a collaboration with graffiti writer, artist and illustrator Curve. Box trucks have come to take the place of subway cars in New York as moving canvases for graffiti writers that allow their work to travel across the city. Curve explores the theme of box trucks in the form of photos of painted trucks, drawings, illustrations and a series of comic strips created exclusively for this issue. The zine also comes with a cut-and-fold Curve box truck model, a custom ultra flat black truck air freshener, a set of vinyl stickers and a handwritten Curve sticker. Issue 8 is limited to 500 numbered copies with screenprinted front and back covers. Large format, full color, perfect-bound, 52 pages.
Also available: A limited run of Curve T-shirts. Out next week: An exclusive 18x24” hand-finished Curve screenprint in an edition of only 45.

Banksy in New York by writer and photographer Ray Mock is the ultimate companion to Banksy’s month-long Better Out Than In project on the streets of New York in October, 2013.
Mock has been documenting street art and graffiti in New York and around the world for many years. His photography has appeared in numerous books (including Graffiti 365, Wild Art and Banksy: You Are an Acceptable Level of Threat) and magazines.
Banksy in New York offers a first-hand day-by-day account of the residency and many of the events surrounding the daily hunt for new pieces. The author is as much a fan as a critic of the artist’s work and delivers his account in the form of a personal narrative that is by turns insightful and humorous, paying homage to Banksy’s wit and creativity while challenging the artist – and his detractors – to consider the true impact of his work.
Banksy in New York features over 120 photos and illustrations on 120 pages and will be available in the store in a limited edition of 2,000 with a screenprinted cover on August 15, 2014 at noon ET.
