This is a small-format book, easy to tuck into a purse, with nice quality (even if a bit small) photography. It claims to present "simply the best graffiti from around the world", but I would dispute that claim. It's a nice collection of photographs by one man, 'KET', who has been active in the graffiti movement for a long time. That's all. It's not an exhaustive survey of the world's best graffiti, like the book 'Graffiti World, Street Art from Five Continents', but then, what do you expect for $11.00?

This is an average level *art* book. It features almost exclusively 'masterpiece' or 'piece' work which is like tagging but with larger letter size, line thickness and outlining. I think it misrepresents graffiti art as a whole.
But most importantly, not to burst bubbles but in the interest of getting what you're paying for, it's about half fake, aka: photoshop-ed.
To be fair, all the art in this book is in graffiti "style" but about half was obviously done on a computer and not in any public places. Much of the rest of the work is questionable. If you're paying attention, it's impossible to miss. Lines don't match up, the ratios and proportions in relation to perspective and corners are completely off. Graffiti over things like power boxes are completely flat and show no dimension whatsoever.
I'm very disappointed in this book and do not recommend it to anyone. I will never get a graffiti art book off the internet again. If you're looking for one, I recommend going to a book store and flipping through the pages to be sure.
