Overview

With the release of Disposable—A History of Skateboard Art in 2004, author Sean Cliver made a brilliant attempt at artfully cataloging every important skateboard deck ever released. In the process, he created a classic, but was left feeling less than whole. Ever the completist, the gaping omissions in the first book gnawed at him and drove him to envision compiling the ultimate encyclopedia of Skateboard decks. While Disposable was beautiful, capturing the essence of the aesthetic, The Disposable Bible of Skateboards sets out to be the ultimate guide. The author's industry insider status (in 1989, he landed his first job as a designer at Powell-Peralta) allows him to walk the reader through the culture, the art and the mania with authority. While the boards take center stage, fascinating vignettes and recollections by a who's who of skateboarding round out the book.

    Take a ride back to the classic days of skateboarding art and style

    This is as comprehensive guide to the classic days of skateboard art and style as you will find, written by an industry insider who is also a passionate collector. The pictures of decks arranged by decades are sure to take you down memory lane and give you an itch for getting your hands on a deck linked to your skateboarding past. Lots of fun!

    Brief Review of The Disposable Skateboard Bible.

    This book is definitely aimed towards the hardcore collector. The interview of collectors and professional skaters makes this book interesting. The majority of skateboards were pre-1990. I was hoping there would be more series and collections from the 1990's, so in that regard I was a little disappointed.
