If you have any interest in skateboarding, you've probably read Quartersnacks. This year marks the tenth anniversary of the hilarious trendsetting internet skateboarding hub. The site provides a truly original viewpoint on a sport that has exploded in popularity and gained mainstream acceptance. Quartersnacks captures the unmistakable energy of the Downtown NYC skate culture with plenty of humour and a healthy dose of self-awareness. QS doesn't only exist online though: they produce a very popular collection of T-shirts, sweats and decks, and have even collaborated with Nike on a shoe. To celebrate their anniversary, Brooklyn’s powerHouse Books is publishing a collection of the best (and worst) from the site alongside new essays, and a look back at the spots, shops and slang that have defined New York skateboarding in the past decade. TF at 1: Ten Years of Quartersnacks is available now for pre-order.

—01. Front cover.

Words

I've been looking forward to the release of this book for a while, and it is now finally available for pre-order online. However, if like me you happen to live in or near New York City you might consider waiting until November 7th, when an official launch party will take place at Patrick Parrish's Mondo Cane. Parrish is an avid collector of Auböck works, and acted as a producer during the books publication. Beautifully shot by photographer Clemens Kois and published by powerHouse Books, this catalog and study of the Auböck studio is an essential purchase for anyone with even a passing interest in the Viennese design house.
