After 38 years out of print, Roger Perry’s cultural commentary and graffiti book ‘Writing on the wall’ may soon be republished. George Stewart-Lockhart, an art historian and publisher, has set up a Kickstarter campaign to fund the republication of this old gem, but for the dream to become a reality it needs your help.
This new issue will include his original view of London graffiti of the mid ’70s as well as additional unseen photographs and text. Jazz singer George Melly’s introduction will still feature in the book but there will also be additions such as a biography, and comments from artist and writer Bill Drummond.
In order to get the book printed, the campaign needs to reach its £6,500 funding goal, and if you decide to help out there are some great rewards like hardback copies of the book and limited edition A3 prints.
Roger was one of us – an old-school Time Outer. He was our magazine’s original photographer so it goes without saying that he was clearly a talented fellow.
Get your hands on a meaningful, artistic view of London by supporting this Kickstarter.
For another great campaign, help keep the memories alive with The Prefab Museum’s Kickstarter.
