Every organisation that was built up on passion and a love of what they do, finds themselves more and more pro-active in their work each year. Montana Cans is no exception as we strive to make the best cans on earth. But that is no excuse to reflect on all the extra curriculum activities like collaborations, festival, project and artist support that happen through the year as well. After all this helped create history. The Montana Cans LOOKBOOK gives an outlet to remember, reflect and reward those who deserve a little extra attention with some extra glow of the spotlight. With great pleasure, we announce the online release of the Montana Cans LOOKBOOK 2019, looking back at some of the highlights of 2019. This edition delves into many projects such as the Montana Cans limited edition cans that featured Mina & Bruce (plus interview), Felipe Pantone, Most and Flying Förtress. We reminisce on the cool collabo's we were involved in with Happy Socks, Good Guy Boris and Reebok Sneakers. We get re-inspired by feature articles on artists IMAGINE, THE LONDON POLICE, FRAU ISA, 1010 and 1UP CREW. We take a look at some of the urban art festivals that raised the bar even higher like METROPOLINK, POW!WOW ROTTERDAM and the THE BERLIN MURAL FESTIVAL. With eyes wide open we scratch under the surface of some alternative disciplines within graffiti culture. The spotlight gets turned on ABSTRACT LETTERING, GRAFFITI ON FREIGHTS and CALLIGRAFFITI. We share some knowledge on the new products like the Montana BLACK INFRA colors and Montana BOLD marker line, which took the industry by storm. Just as the special moment that was the grand opening of the MONTANA STORE VIENNA with our industry partners CONCRETE, did. All this and more over 160 enthralling full color pages.

STEEL IS REAL, a proverb

STEEL IS REAL, a proverb that often exits the mouths of graffiti artists globally. In every country where freight trains can be found, whether it is due to long transport distances, few inhabitants or a strong economy of import/export. Freight trains are that "other" steel that a lot of artists turn to, to develop their creative tendencies. Over the years, the changing shape of freight trains and ever growing distances that they travel across borders and continents has made them an even more attractive target as substrate for graffiti artwork. Freight Train Graffiti That other "steel" that is just as real 98

In the high security world of camera's, guards, sensors and unscalable fences, the prospect of more time and less stress is an enticing one. For those well practiced in the art of freight train painting, a sense of preference can occur when the artwork being created becomes more suitable for the windowless shape of the often-giant metal monsters. Watching your name go by 6 months, 12 months or even years later is a novel luxury not often possible in other disciplines of illegal graffiti. Watch this space, as your name could go by over, and over again. Each time with a little more dust, a little more rust and a little more romance then the last time. 99
