Our longtime contributing writer Roger Gastman (and one of the curators of the MOCA "Art In the Streets" exhibition next Spring) has a new book called Tools of Criminal Mischief that documents various tools of criminal mischief. As Roger puts it, "The danger, history, process, spray cans, magic markers, and the local styles are just a few parts of graffiti that I fixate on. Different aspects interest me at different times, but what always continues to excite me is the oddity - especially pedestrian graffiti and the strange pop-culture references."

As you can tell, we really like French artist Dran on this site. There is a good spirit to the work, a good amount of humor and wit that resonates with the foundation of the magazine. Dran is a busy man at the moment, showing at "Marks & Stencils" and at Pictures on Walls in London, and he now has a new book out, I Love My World. More information after the jump . . .

We are still trying to throw some holiday gift ideas out to you, and we are thinking the new Murakmai Versailles catalog, released at Colette, would be a good idea. Not only does Murakami's work photograph well, Versailles is one of the most amazing palaces in the world, and the internationally renowned residency of the famed Japanese artist is definitely something worth having in a historical document.

After the Holidays, when you may be sitting on some extra cash from the grandparents or eBaying everything you didn't want, there will be a new Barry McGee book from Bologna's Damiani Editore together with Alleged Press. The new McGee title will include visual collage of photographs, drawings, paintings, and pictures from various installations. More after the jump . . .

Anyone who made it to Shepard Fairey's May Day show, the final at Deitch Projects, remembers how striking the work looked against the gigantic white walls. Shepard's reinterpretation of the American flag were our favorite pieces from the show, one of them a cover of Gingko Press' new book, MAYDAY: The Art of Shepard Fairey, chronicling that very last show in May of 2010 at Deitch Projects. Book cover and spreads after the jump . . .

Just going to throw this out there: that is a scary-ass cover. Not in the “I can’t sleep” scary way, but in the, “My dreams are now of little weird animal creatures drinking sake out of coffee mugs at a basement bar in Budapest, and how did I get here with them?” sort of scary way.
