TNN [at] Home: [DEFinition] The Art & Design of Hip-Hop

One of my favorite things to do as of recent has been to visit different magazine shops and book stores throughout the city to see what I can find, bring it home to add to my ever growing collection. There are three things your home should contain; Exceptional garments in your wardrobe, great pieces of furniture that spark interesting conversations and of course great reads; whether they are novels, coffee table books or magazines. A newly added favorite of mine is none other than [DEFinition: The Art and Design of Hip Hop].

Compiled by legendary hip-hop designer Cey Adams, DEFinition: The Art and Design of Hip-Hop is the first comprehensive anthology published in the name of the genre during the last thirty-five years. This landmark volume celebrates a culture that has made its mark on everything from fine art to the label on a bottle of Hawaiian Punch, including fashion, automobiles, movies, television, advertising and sneakers. Its incredible to see the path that Hip-Hop has taken over the years, from old school to new school. From the way things/artists were branded to the influence that this culture has on the world today. This is a suggested buy and such a great addition to your home library. From Biggie to Keith Haring and Adidas too. Its a LifeSTYLE.
