Her book was also selected as Product Of The day on MTV.com. 

Graffiti is everywhere these days. Why not on your coffee table? A new book, “Bombshell: The Life and Crimes of Claw Money” (powerHouse Books), documents the career of Claw Money, who began tagging in New York in the early 1990s and is one of the pioneering women in the field. The book, whose title plays on Money’s va-va-boom-box style, closes a chapter: she’s retiring. But like Jay-Z, she has plenty to keep her busy, from her massive vintage clothing collection to a fashion director’s job at Swindle magazine and a namesake clothing line, with T-shirts, retailored bomber jackets and scarves that bear her signature logo. Show them the Money. From the NY Times.
