Norman Mailer, The Faith of Graffiti

In 1973, author Norman Mailer teamed with photographer Jon Naar to produce The Faith of Graffiti, a fearless exploration of the birth of the street art movement in New York City. The book coupled Mailer’s essay on the origins and importance of graffiti in modern urban culture with Naar’s radiant, arresting photographs of the young graffiti writers’ work.
