During the production of this book, there was a lot of communication between people that knew and worked side by side with Dondi White. At one point, we were sitting in our conference room with Dana Albarella, Kel, Mare, Duro, Doc, Keo, and Reas, looking at the photos of Dondi's work. The purpose of the meeting was to interview and gather comments that would be used as captions, effectively narrating the photos in the book. It was mind boggling to hear all these stories about these famous trains. In many ways, this project was a dream come true. For years, I would always fantasize about getting to see or know more details about this time period in NY graffiti. I hope this book will be one of many focusing on the work of individual graffiti artists.
