Ben Osborne, editor in chief of SLAM Magazine, has created a new book about sneaker culture titled Slam Kicks: Basketball Sneakers that Changed the Game. The 208-page paperback book features 250 color illustrations of some of the most important sneakers to ever touch the hardwood, from Converse Chuck Taylor All-Stars and Nike Air Jordan 1s, to Puma Clydes and the Nike Air Max CB2. The 33 pairs are organized chronologically for the most part, with essays by Scoop Jackson, Lang Whitaker, John Brilliant, and Russ Bengtson included in the mix. Slam Kicks isn't encyclopedic in scope, but it does provide extensive information about the nearly three dozen pairs that fill its pages, and the players and teams that made them important. Yes, Michael Jordan is well represented, and Kobe, Penny, and Lebron make appearances, but it's the inclusion of people like Charles Barkley, Dee Brown, Rick Barry, George Gervin, Walt Frazier, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar that makes this book legit.
"Arabic Graffiti" is an international success and remains the standard work on the topic. This new revised edition is extended by a new chapter about graffiti produced during the recent Arab uprisings and an update of graffiti in Bahrain. “Arabic Graffiti” brings together artists, graffiti writers and typographers from the Middle East and around the world who merge Arabic calligraphy with the art of graffiti writing, street art and urban culture. In addition to a rich assortment of photos featuring Arabic graffiti and street art styles, it includes essays by distinguished authors and scene experts, in which they explore the traditional elements, modern approaches, and the socio-political and cultural backgrounds which have shaped Arabic graffiti movements in the Middle East. “Arabic Graffiti” is curated and authored by Lebanese typographer Pascal Zoghbi and graffiti writer and publisher Stone aka Don Karl, is an extensive and valuable reference on contemporary graffiti, urban calligraphy and type design in the realm of Arabic letters.

More than four years of research culminated in the publication of the first edition Arabic Graffiti (English) in January 2011. However just then, the Arab uprisings started, and concurrently an explosion of Arabic Graffiti hit the region. Even while residing in Berlin, Don Karl found himself in the middle of these currents. Through various art projects he broadened his contacts with artists, who took part in the Egyptian and Tunisian revolutions, and befriended many of them. Together with Pascal Zoghbi, Don Karl organized Arabic Graffiti exhibitions and events around Arabic Graffiti in Alexandria, Amman, Beirut, Berlin, Bochum, Boston, Cairo, Dresden, Dubai, Frankfurt, Mannheim, Montreal, Nantes, Paris and Weimar, to name a few.
