This is a replica of Akay’s first blackbook. The production of the original began in the autumn of 1986, when 16-year-old Akay glued a spray paint color sample chart onto the first page of an unassuming, standard-sized sketchbook. Through his nightly additions of sketches and photographs and newspaper clippings until the spring of 1990, the personal document of a prolific graffiti writer became this unintentional chronicle of an era of Stockholm graffiti.
