by Ed Hardy
This deluxe, thick, two-hardcover book set in slipcover is the 30th-anniversary re-release of all five issues of the historic Tattootime magazine.
Tattootime changed the world of tattooing with documents, ideas, and images that became legendary and this year marks the 30th anniversary of New Tribalism, the first issue and premiere publishing effort of Hardy Marks Publishing. This was the book that detonated the explosive growth of tattooing in the late twentieth century.
Naturally, after so many years out of print, copies of Tattootime have become extremely hard to find. But now, all five issues of Tattootime have been collected into one volume for the first time. This set includes:
New Tribalism (1982)
Tattoo Magic (1983)
Music & Sea Tattoos (1984)
Life & Death Tattoos (1987)
Art from the Heart (1991)
Each issue contains stories, flash, and tattoos from some of the greatest names in tattoo history. All content is taken from the first printings of each original issue, since the subsequent reprints omitted some material. Combined, it adds up to 352 full-color pages, plus original cover and an added 27-page subject and title index for the entire series.
Two-hardcover book set in slipcover. 352 pages. Measures 8 3/4" X 11 1/2"
