Skateboarders releasing books is a rarity, however those that usually do get published are from the legends of art. Skateboarding pioneer Mark Gonzales has confirmed he is now releasing a book by Italian publisher Rizzoli.
Rizzoli stated in a press release, "This is the first comprehensive book devoted to the Gonz's pioneering work in skateboarding as well as streetwear, fashion, and art--a bold collection of work straight from the mind of the artist, as seen through exclusive work by the creator of some of his most iconic images, Sem Rubio. Much of the book shows off his legendary tricks and a portfolio of his many worlds. With contributions by Hiroshi Fujiwara, KAWS, Ed Templeton, Tommy Guerrero, Tony Hawk, Stan Smith, Gus Van Sant, and more, this indispensable volume gathers over thirty years of creation by a man widely recognized as the most influential skateboarder of all time."
The book is made up of 208 pages and will be available from 22nd September 2020.
