This is it! The SPRAY NATION Box Set is the ultimate collector’s item. The box includes Martha Cooper’s SPRAY NATION from 2022 as a signed version with a different hardcover. It also contains an envelope with five exclusive postcards with selected shots from the legendary photographer and the cover shot as big sized poster. But the true highlight is definitely The Outtakes, a portrait format softcover with 224 pages. This gem features solely photos from the Golden Era between 1980 and 1984 my Martha Cooper.

Other than the content of SPRAY NATION, that contains shots arranged in a layout which reminds of the SUBWAY ART ressiues, The Outtakes follows a whole different approach. Just a like in a protocol you are able to follow her shooting different trains at the same spot, often seemingly at the same day. Small chapters compile unknown works from BLADE & COMET, DONDI, IZ THE WIZ, CAP, PJAY, DUSTER, SEEN, REVOLT, Richard Hambleton, John Fekner, Keith Harin, or Jean-Michel Basquiat. More arrangements show crossings, silvers, throw-ups, gallery shots, commercial works, street pieces, street and inside tags.

While the material featured in SPRAY NATION is also available in the standard version, The Outtakes’ content is exclusively available in this limited edition. Only 1000 sets have been produced and we are especially glad to finally offer you this amazing box. Next to SUBWAY ART this might be Martha Cooper’s most important set of publications on the New York writing culture. Get it before it is gone!
