Super Labo, 2015 First edition, signed Hardcover, 96 pages, 200 x 190 mm Condition: New
The sequel to Ed Templeton's iconic book Teenage Smokers, containing many of the images that could not fit into the original book, published in 1999 by Alleged Press.
"The subject Teenage Smokers has always fascinated me. When I was young, for a very short period I thought it might be «cool» to smoke. I ripped a piece of paper and pulled some grass, rolled it into the paper, lit it on fire and took a puff. It felt like inhaling shards of glass and I coughed uncontrollably doubled over in pain. My friend’s mother (a smoker herself) said to me, «Yeah, that’s how smoking feels.» And that was enough for me. I was never going to smoke. So when I would see young people smoking I would always marvel at them. They are the ones who wanted to look cool so badly that they overcame the pain of starting smoking. Since my profession took me all over the world skateboarding, I was always surrounded by young skaters and, inevitably, teenage smokers.”
