Book description
This 112 page, full color book is the first overview of the famously notorious DF graffiti crew & their legal & illegal creations. Collectively, DF is made up of 21 (plus a few slackers) artists (including Aero, Cycle, Dalek, East, Emit, Gaze, Jive, Just 195, Lead, Merz, Nace, Noble, Quisp, Rapes, REM, Scribe, Seak, Sub, T. Dee, Vogues, When) 21 of these artists are featured in "DF: Idiots on Parade." Both collectively & individually, DF has left their mark on the graffiti landscape all over the world. Just in the last 5 years DF's membership has shown their work in over 50 group or solo gallery & museum shows all throughout the US as well as Canada, Japan and England. 
Using graffiti as a artistic stepping off point, many have explored other areas of the arts including commercial design, still life & landscape painting, toy design, authoring & illustrating children's books, tattoo artist, and in one case, aspiring rodeo clown! Some members have had collections published, including Dalek's 2 previously published books. And here's the best of it all, in one handy, sumptuous package.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0977765105, Paperback)

Graffiti culture has gone from a small but devoted urban following to widespread popularity. It now influences everything from popular music, comics, and fashion to tattoos and advertising. After 20 years of collaboration, the DF graffiti crew is recognized worldwide as the preeminent purveyors of this art form that operates with equal panache in plush venues and subterranean, often illegal, locales. This beautifully illustrated book celebrates the work of 21 of the DF artists, displaying their mix of irreverence, ingenuity, daring, and talent. It includes works from Dalek, Scribe, Rapes, Emit, Merz, Sub, Cycle, Quisp, East, and Carter Gilliss aka “Clark Kent,” whose grotesque juxtapositions of the everyday and the extraordinary show why the group is so distinctive. The art is shown in various contexts, including galleries and museums, popular magazines, children’s books, toys, and of course the dynamic street scene that made them famous.
