{     My Freedamn! Vol.2 by Rin Tanaka     }    

Wow. Just... Wow. This guy Rin Tanaka has been digging through every nook and cranny of the States for the past ten years, looking for the rarest of rare sport t-shirts. In 2003 he compiled a chunk of his collection, along with a wide selection of photography from his searches and a big batch of interviews, into a hardcover book titled "My Freedamn!" Although it was an English book, the initial pressing sold out completely to Japanese buyers, and it's reprint didn't last much longer, although it did make it across some seas. Well, now in 2004, Rin has put together Volume 2 of his "My Freedamn!" books, and this one looks to even surpass the first in quality, quantity, and other good things that start with the letter 'Q'. It's full of some of the most beautiful, funny, suave, cool, mean, thoughtful, thoughtless, insightful, and intelligent designs ever to be screened onto cotton. Even better is that when he says that the shirts are 'sports' related, don't think baseball and football, think surf, skate, offroad, motorcycles, hot rods, and all that crazy shit. The sports we actually give a fuck about. The kind where people get really, really hurt. The kind that look good. The kind that have really badass t-shirts. 750 designs in all, printed in color, bound hardcover. Get it to remember, get it to inspire, get it to rip-off, whatever, just get it.
