Book Preview: Bromsten – 25 Years of Bombing & Burners
A new book by Björn Engberg, titled Bromsten – 25 År Av Bombing & Burners (translated as Bromsten – 25 Years of Bombing & Burners) has had some light shined on it thanks to Bates’ post on his blog on 12ozProphet. The book documents over a quarter century of graffiti in a run down and industrial suburban area called Spånga, located in Stockholm. Although the Bromsten itself is a renovated and organized middle-class city , this book provides a more in-depth look at this contrasting gritty and desolate area. Memories are also shared in this book by numerous local graffiti artists like Circle, Card, Crome, Serw, Rustle/Iano, Astma, Dyre, Sken, Mint, Relik and Cbee. Bromsten looks like it’s definitely going to have some amazing content to share with whoever’s hands it’ll be in. Be sure to scroll down to check out some exclusive preview spreads from the book, which is going to be released April 12th, 2012.
