For thirty years, Thrasher has been the bible of the skateboarding world. Just the name alone conjures up iconic images of what skateboarding was and is. With such a rich history, it’s no wonder that Rizzoli/Universe and Thrasher have come together to compile for the first time, a collection of its collectible covers.

You’ll find every cover published in the past thirty years–the out-of-print and hard-to-find– in chronological order and the all important, behind-the-scenes stories as told by the people behind and in front of the camera.

Look out for  Maximum Rad: The Iconic Covers of Thrasher Magazine out February 21, 2012.
