George Lois- Ali Rap

December 25th, 2006

Whilst this is a great book, simply because it compiles great quote after quote by a worldwide recognised icon, it has many major flaws. Firstly, whilst the book revolves around what it describes as the most famous man in the world, its creators seemed to have had trouble finding enough photographs of the subject, more often than not using very cliche, poor clipart or stock images. Secondly is the subtitle- ‘The first heavyweight champion of rap’. Whilst this is touched upon briefly in the short introduction, the idea isn’t explored or sustained to any length which will leave many hiphop fans content. That aside, if its on your coffee table and you’re bored, you’re never going to fail in finding an amusing one liner here. This is out on Taschen now.
