In 2010 James Jebbia, the founder of Supreme NYC published a 304 paged monograph in the form of an oversized hardcover book. The piece is largely written by the man himself, with additional contributions by OG Supreme staff Aaron Bondaroff, renowned journalist Glenn O’Brien and KAWS. This book is the first and only worthy of its kind covering the Supreme NYC labels’ history in a way nobody else could, a sharp monograph by the brands founder.
The book is printed on a hard cover in the style of a “coffee table” book, commonly used to serve as an aesthetic display in a living room or open space. With the release of the book came an extra interesting piece, a Friends and Family exclusive Rizzoli Box Logo t-shirt. Black on white with an image of Supreme affiliate skater, Javier Nunez on the rear end. This t-shirt was never for sale anywhere and limited to Friends & Family of Supreme when the book released, nearly a decade ago. A piece like this is as good as never for sale given the scarcity, discretion and exclusivity in which it was made.
