Axel Thiel unexpectedly died in 2006, but his archive and work live on at http://www.graffitiforschung.tk/ .

Probably the best so far reference guide to all kinds of graffiti-related books, magazines, internet resources, and articles etc. Paperback: 42 German Marks or the equivalent. Some of the text is Dutch, but since it's a reference book, that didn't keep me from accessing the information. The references are wide-ranging and reasonably complete.
For books, write to:
B-9000 Gent (Belgium)
Axel Thiel, coordinator of the International Work-Group on Graffiti-Research collected a 20-year graffiti archive that he made available to researchers and students by appointment, in Kassel Germany. Students were asked only to donate a copy of their finished work to the archive, in exchange. For more information, contact The International Work-Group on Graffiti-Research.
