Product description

With the release of Disposable - A History of Skateboard Art in 2004, author Sean Cliver made a brilliant attempt at artfully cataloging every important skateboard deck ever released. In the process, he created a classic, but was left feeling less than satisfied. Ever the completist, the gaping omissions in the first book gnawed at him and drove him to envision compiling the ultimate encyclopedia of Skateboard decks. While Disposable was beautiful, capturing the essence of the aesthetic, The Disposable Skateboard Bible sets out to be the ultimate guide. The author's industry insider status (in 1989 he landed his first job as a designer at Powell-Peralta) allows him to guide readers through the culture and experience, the art and the mania of the skate world with authority and expertise. While the boards take center stage, fascinating vignettes and recollections by an A-list of skateboarding personalities from Tony Hawk to Mike Vallely, Mark Gonzales to Stacy Peralta and more.

I bought this for my son who is 11yrs old and a massive skateboard fan. However, when it arrived I was hooked. The book has endless photos of skateboards from the 60's, 70's, 80's and 90's. The artwork is fascinating and I spent about half an hour browsing the photos. There is a small amount of text and what I have read is interesting too, considering I am no skate board enthusiast and my knowledge is limited. I plan to read it all before giving to my son at Christmas. It's a fabulous photographic history of skateboards and any skate fan would love it, considering a 40yr old woman found it enthralling too!!! You will not be disappointed and this site was the cheapest I found it.
