    DescriptionOn the heels of the graffiti renaissance comes a vibrant look at an old-school icon that figured prominently in music movements of the 1970s and 80s. The Boombox Project features contemporary fine art portraits of an array of vintage boomboxes, as well as scores of documentary photographs of the people who brought the boombox movement to life back in the day. The book is more than just a collection of images, though; it's also an oral history of the early days of hip-hop, featuring memories from Fab 5 Freddie, Bob Gruen, Rosie Perez, Kool Moe Dee, LL Cool J, Lisa Lisa, DJ Spooky and Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys among others on the role this once ubiquitous machine played. This lively and highly stylish volume is one of the coolest books of the season.
