While most graffiti books just have pictures of finished pieces and maybe some action shots, the people over at The Grifters have gone above that with their new book called "Graffiti Without Graffiti," which shows how much work can go into getting a spot sometimes.

Northern California is home to some of the world’s most gorgeous landscapes. From the Sierra to the Ocean, to mountains that touch the Pacific, the ethereal beauty is a work of art itself. For over 40 years, Tom Killion has delicately archived the environmental majesty of California within the traditional process of Japanese-Style woodblock printmaking, creating stunning, colorful works through a handmade, ancient operation.
