Throughout March and April 2013, weekly features were published on this news blog. We’ve compiled a PDF document with all nine Friday Features for free download. Click the link below:
“Secret Team is a graffiti zine strictly for writers. The first issue features writers from around the country as well as the UK and New Zealand.”
“We started it because there is nothing for writers locally, if you want to see street art or characters you can find tons of that anywhere but actual graffiti letters and handstyles - the crux of what writing is - is not catered for by anyone, so we stepped in.”
“There are many writers in SA with good style and lettering but get no chance to shine, whereas character ‘writers’ get a lot of limelight so we wanted to showcase some local skills and make a zine just for those who piece, tag, throwup, etc.”
Secret Team is available at Shelflife Store (119 Loop Street, Cape Town) for R25
