Ed Piskor - Hip Hop Family Tree Volumes 1–2: 1975–1983 Gift Box Set
A special slipcover and an all new 24-page comic are included in the box set of this smash hit series documenting the history of hip-hop.
To celebrate the resounding critical and commercial success of the first two volumes of Ed Piskor’s unprecedented history of hip-hop, we are offering both books in a mind-blowingly colorful slipcase, drawn and designed by the artist. As if that’s not enough, in addition to the two books and the slipcase itself, Piskor has drawn a 24-page comic book — Hip Hop Family Tree #300 — specifically for this boxed set that elegantly reflects the confluence of hip-hop and comics, which was never more apparent in the early 1990s than with the famous Spike Lee-directed Levi’s Jeans commercial starring Rob Liefeld, who went on to create Youngblood and co-found Image Comics, not to mention ending up on the radar of gangster rapper Eazy–E. Piskor tells this story as a perfect parody/pastiche/homage to ’90s Image comics.
