Designed by Ed Templeton. "A fixture of Los Angeles' skateboarding scene, Ed Templeton has been producing photographs and paintings documenting his life, tours, and encounters in the skateboarding world for ten years". A hefty artist's book cum exhibition catalogue from the man that brought us "Teenage Smokers", this was published in conjunction with the retrospective "Ed Templeton-The Essential Disturbance" at Paris' Palais de Tokyo. "The Age of Neglect" is a colorful, tour-de-force examination of skateboard culture, wayward youth, and teenage sexuality. With echoes of Larry Clark and Harmony Korine, this is one of the coolest, grittiest photo-essays we've seen in recent years. A most handsome example of the 2002 first Drago printing additionally BOLDLY SIGNED "ENJOY / Ed Templeton" in black ink on the front free endpaper.
