Product Details
  • Collection includes: -Buddy Esquire Paste-Up Multimedia collage. Illustration in ink. This paste-up is an original work by Buddy Esquire, the flyer king. Buddy Esquire produced thousands of flyers advertising the performances and parties hosted by the founders of hip-hop. Only a few other illustrators were in the game, and none came anywhere near as close in defining the graphics of the age as Buddy Esquire. A unique item, designed by an under-recognized foundational figure from the most important art form of the 20th Century and an oft-overlooked moment in the history of the New York underground. Collection of 10 Original Hip-Hop Fliers Offset. All near fine to very good condition. (8 ½ x 11 in. except one 5 ½ x 8 ½ in.)

-Wild Style by Charlie Ahearn Japan: Kaz Kuzui and Shun Hisamatsu, 1983. 62pp. 12mo. (5 ½ x 6 ¾ in.) Staple bound. Good condition. This is a very rare art book and cassette tape made in Japan in conjunction with the release of the classic hip-hop film Wild Style directed by Charlie Ahearn. Designed by Shun Hisamatsu and Kaz Kuzui, the book and cassette are housed in a plastic slipcase and contains full-color collages, photographs, and newspaper clippings of performers and graffiti artists who appear in the film Wild Style. The included cassette tape is titled “Wild Style Hip Hop Rap Music in New York” and is meant to look like a mixtape. The tape contains selections from the Wild Style soundtrack. Wild Style is often referred to as the first hip-hop movie. Released in 1982, it is a hybrid of a documentary and narrative musical, featuring seminal figures of the time such as Fab Five Freddy, Lady Pink, The Rock Steady Crew, Grandmaster Flash, Lee Quinones, and others. This Japanese book and cassette demonstrate the far-reaching impact of hip-hop culture in the South Bronx in the early 1980s, and varying formats with which it was documented.
