'The graffiti that Perry highlights are a generation away from the three-dimensional, self-referential designs that we have now become accustomed to: instead, they are urgent messages from another, hidden world, designed to be read and forcibly understood by a general public that would have preferred to walk on by.' --Jon Savage
'It s like getting in a time machine and journeying back to the golden age of graffiti - by which I mean verbal graffiti that actually says something ... Of course, verbal graffiti is a form of expression that has now more or less died out replaced by internet sharing, tweeting and so on, but this reissue of Roger Perry s great book is a wonderful reminder of what it once was in its heyday.' --Nigel Rees
'A unique distillation of a London that no-longer exists.' --King Adz
Roger Perry's The Writing on the Wall was last seen in book shops nearly 40 years ago. It was arguably the first major survey of London's fledgling graffiti scene, and helped establish a trend which has ultimately led to the massive proliferation of such books, visible in nearly every book store and museum gift shop in the world. The graffiti Perry photographs can be seen as the roots of what we're familiar with today. It's a far more visceral means of communication, that for the most part is less worried about the style of the writing, and more concerned with the content of the message. An extensive new foreword tells the stories behind the photos for the first time, and features insights from a number of those responsible for writing the graffiti in the first place. The photos give us a fascinating window into 1970s countercultural London, with Perry giving an impartial platform to anyone and everyone that wanted to be heard over the backdrop of urban decay and regeneration. The central figures in the story are an eclectic mix, including members of situationist group King Mob, poet and playwright Heathcote Williams, journalist Neil Lyndon and even members of the legendary ska band Madness.
