Chapter One, Yesterday, covers the background on stickers and a brief overview of the history of graffiti. It explores how stickers came to have a place in the world of graffiti as street art came to be alongside writing.
Chapter Two, Today, has the following subchapters: Earning Respect, Target Audience, Symbols, Risky Business, Techniques and Secrets, and Artists and Artworks. They tend to explore the philosophy of stickers in the graffiti world and are punctuated with quotes from artists. The techniques section is not a how-to but a description of different methods of application. The section on 26 international artists is a gallery of photographs alongside information about each artist.
Chapter Three, Tomorrow, surmises about the acceptance as an art form by the public.
All chapters are extensively illustrated with well-chosen photographs. I don't mean to imply that this book is text-heavy: it's not at all. There are lots of good photos. Information is presented concisely, and you can skip around or not read at all if you want. I didn't really know what to expect from this book (that's why I'm writing this review for you!). I was happy with the photos and pleasantly surprised to find myself looking forward to reading each new section. Yes, there could have been a few more pics, but the quality of the text made up for it.
