A deluxe book of 30 removable and frameable posters by legendary skateboard photographer Hugh Holland. Throughout the 1970s, Hugh Holland documented not only the nascent sport of skateboarding that originated in Southern California, but also the style, grace, and athleticism of the teenagers themselves. Drawn from his iconic skateboarding book Locals Only—called "a celebration of youth" (Los Angeles Times) and "a perfect snapshot of the wild, frenetic energy of that era" (LAist.com)—this collectible is both an irresistible coffee table book and a treasure trove of individual decorative images. For anyone who appreciates a vintage, retro vibe, this classic California photo book offers 30 removable posters that document the legendary Dogtown and Z-Boys skateboarders with their requisite bleached-blond hair, tanned bodies, tube socks, and Vans sneakers—young outsiders masterfully captured against a sometimes harsh but always sunny Southern California landscape.
