Read More Newspaper stands Installation

Graffiti // Friday, October 12, 2012
We were recently discussing newspaper stands and their disappearance from the streets of major cities. Not to long ago, they were scattered everywhere offering a variety of local and international papers, but really we just love them because graffiti makes sense on them. Maybe Read More Books has been scooping them up and storing them in a warehouse for his own art projects. This installation is from a recent show at Ditch Projects in Oregon.

Read More and Swoon cameos in Diplo Video

Graffiti // Wednesday, September 05, 2012
I have been on a Major Lazer music marathon lately and of course that means I have been listening to plenty of Diplo. While watching videos this morning to get pumped for the day, I ran across the “Express Yourself” video by Diplo, which basically consists of more ass shaking than anything.  If you watch closely, the video has a quick frame where a Read More Books sticker is the main focus and Swoon's wheatpastes act as a backdrop for a majority of the song.

Rankos, aka Read More Books, Goes Under the Freeway

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 24, 2012
Somewhere in Cleveland, Ohio underneath an overpass the graffiti writer, Rankos, aka Read More Books, had a field day painting numerous different styled pieces. That would be 10 to be exact. Too bad some base head found a red can laying around and made a pathetic attempt at dissing some of them.
