Pinstripe Planet: Fine Lines from the World's Best
Pinstriping is the signature art of Kustom Kulture, pinstriping is the purest expression of a customizer's style. Pinstripe Planet, authored by one of the art's most respected practitioners, is a photographic and textual celebration of this unique decorative art form, a genuine instance of motor-Americana now making its mark around the globe. A historical and visual overview of pinstriping culture, the book takes readers into all the great shops-from Circle City Hot Rods and Baron Speed Shop to Romance of Rust and The Paintbox-and right into the action as a variety of rides ranging from hot rods and lowriders to old-school choppers and bobbers are striped up. Showcasing the distinct history and tradition of each region where the art flourishes, Pinstripe Planet features the work of today's most influential contemporaries, such as Art Schilling, Jimmy C, Steve Chazyeka, and Herb Martinez in the United States; Tom Plate, John Leeson and Neil Meillard in Europe; Makoto Kobayashi in Japan; and Simon Watts in Australia. It also provides a look at the origins of pinstriping and its revival at the hands of the great Kenny ""Von Dutch"" Howard, Tommy the Greek and Ed ""Big Daddy"" Roth.
