On A Day With No Waves - A Chronicle Of Skateboarding 1779-2009 Book
By Raphaël Zarka
This book is a must own for any skate nerd out there. It is a chronological timeline of skateboarding, brands, sponsorships, contests and more. "skateboarding is above all a question of forms. Forms of rest, forms of movement, they subtly extend throughout the entire history of art and science, from Galileo to Robert Morris. Urban architecture, but also skatepark obstacles, strangely echoes those forms. Zarkas essays participate in a kind of fantastic archaeology; in their way, they expand his sculptural and photographic practice".
