A deluxe book of 30 removable and frameable posters by legendary skateboard photographer Hugh Holland.

Throughout the 1970s, Hugh Holland documented not only the nascent sport of skateboarding that originated in Southern California, but also the style, grace, and athleticism of the teenagers themselves. 

Drawn from his iconic skateboarding book Locals Only—called "a celebration of youth" (Los Angeles Times) and "a perfect snapshot of the wild, frenetic energy of that era" (LAist.com)—this collectible is both an irresistible coffee table book and a treasure trove of individual decorative images. For anyone who appreciates a vintage, retro vibe, this classic California photo book offers 30 removable posters that document the legendary Dogtown and Z-Boys skateboarders with their requisite bleached-blond hair, tanned bodies, tube socks, and Vans sneakers—young outsiders masterfully captured against a sometimes harsh but always sunny Southern California landscape.

IMAGES FROM ICONIC SKATEBOARD BOOK: The beloved images on these 30 frameable posters are drawn from Hugh Holland's iconic Locals Only photography book.

AFFORDABLE FRAMEABLE ART: Posters that evoke a retro vibe are ideal for dorm room décor as well as apartment and home decorating. This affordable volume offers a rare opportunity to collect frameable posters of Holland's images.

ARTFUL GIFT: The perfect present for art collectors, photography aficionados, and skateboarding and surf culture fans, this volume is both a collectible book and a set of high-quality art posters to share and frame.

Perfect for:
  • College students seeking vintage art for dorm décor
  • Young adults and discerning homeowners in need of evocative décor
  • Designers, decorators, and fashion-centric readers
  • Birthday, holiday, graduation, or housewarming gift under $30
  • Fans of Hugh Holland's photographs and books
