This little book!!!
If you want to be transported back to New York City in 1991 look no further, these pages stink of it. One of skateboarding's great writers, Jocko Weyland, spent an early 90s evening out shooting photos with Jeff Pang, Ivan Perez, Harold Hunter, and Peter Huynh. Dave Swift deemed the 12 useable photos inferior to the quality expected from Transworld, and 30 years later they have found a home in Egg Strike On Orchard alongside Jocko's story of the evening and his new drawings of the same photos. Quite simply one of the best skate related books you could wish for.
"A succinct record of a now fabled and pioneering point in history, a vivid and streetlight-hued portal to departed era before the then-unimaginable onslaught of popularisation, monetisation, and ubiquity", I can't stress enough how pleasurable the hour or so you will spend reading this book will be.
A mini masterpiece, a short story about how wonderful our culture can be and the most vivid painting of the often lawless freedom of early 90s downtown NYC.
First edition of 500, 48 pages, 6" x 8.25", published by Dashwood Books.
