Greased Up Eye Candy

Here's some thin' for the Kustom Kulture freaks out there. OK, you can all put your hands down now... I know my audience.

A number of new books are on the shelves from Koreo Books. This one Kustom Kamera, is due out in May.

In all, Kustom Kamera profiles 9 photographers including one of my favourites, Dirk Behlau AKA: Pixeleye.

As well as Richard Heeps, whose photography collections include Man's Ruin and Rolled Out. KK is described as follows:

"With more beautifully produced, adrenalin-soaked pages of visceral eye-popping images, this collection is a must-have for all the greasers, hot rodders, and kustom artists who loved Kustom Graphics, as well as fans of stunning cutting-edge photography."

This little beaut 'Pinstripe Planet II', also from Koreo, is out now and is a follow up to the highly successful PP1.

As I was previewing the book, I noticed a feature on
Ed 'Big Daddy' Roth. That alone, is worth the cover price of this hardcover.

Described as
"More Fine Lines From the World's Best", I'm anxious to see some of the work from the other artists featured between the pages... because that gas tank is SIC!
