Format: Hardcover
Like many of Barry McGee's previous publications his latest book is a mish-mash of sorts and incorporates a mixture of photographs and artworks. In one sense it makes sense since McGee's street art is considered essential to his work. But there are also snapshots mixed in and it feels a little disjointed. I like the reproductions of his traditional 2D artworks (canvases, works on paper) and wish there were more of it in the book. Hopefully some day someone will publish a book just on his gallery work. The book is ok, not great. If you're a McGee fan you'll know what to expect. For those new to his art try and look through it first before deciding to purchase.

BY A MILE the best book to date that show cases Barry Mcgee's work. The book is SUPER thick, Pictures are in color, quality of the pictures is incredible. Barry Mcgee raises the bar when it comes to putting out a book. The book is worth every penny. I liked it so much I bought 2, one for me, and one for my girlfriend. CANT GO WRONG WITH THIS BOOK!

Format: Paperback
Yes this is the heaviest book of mcgee's thus far. weight wise, content wise. At least image wise that is. Beautiful, excessive, kinda small in size like a big fat sketch book. This might lend itself to the distacted variable ethos of the street, where the work has a short shelf life and an even shorter period in which to engage the viewer.
Yes, you should probably own this book, if you like McGee's work. With the scattershot approach and the distracted view already available prevalent and so expected in viewing public graff the scrap book approach and the cropped close quarters feel of this book might actually lend itself towards digesting the work and help the viewer gain a window necessary to digesting work of this nature with its variable perspective approach.
For the written content; the meat and potatoes is still in the "Regards" exhibition booklet from the Walker Art Center Exhibition. This is where Barry comes alive and speaks from the heart.
The Fondazione Prada book comes across more so as a sketch book and an extensive one at that.

Format: Paperback
This is a great Book. I find it to be THE book to have concerning Barry McGee's art career thus far. I have seen all of his other catalogs and this one is by far the most complete. Barry McGee has one other catalog entitled Hoss from a show in 1999, this is a small catalog, but there is an interview that is more truthful than the one in this publication. All in all I would say that this is a great Book, highly recommended!!
