There are few sports that promote individuality as much as skateboarding does. From riding techniques to clothing to gear, there are many ways boarders can stand out from their peers by showcasing their personal tastes, interests, and allegiance. But one of the most time-honored methods of personalization has to be through deck decorations, specifically with stickers.
To celebrate this tradition, Studio Rarekwai has released a new book titled Stickerbomb Skate: 150 Classic Skateboard Stickers, which features some of the sport’s most iconic decals from past to present. In addition to the peelable stickers from classic brands like Alien Workshop, REAL, Toy Machine, Girl, and Santa Cruz, the book also includes interviews with the illustrators and artists like Jim Philip, Ed Templeton, and Mike Hill.
This is a definite must-cop for any fans of skateboarding and art.
