Format: Paperback
Graffiti has its poster board roots on city walls, typically - but this worldwide survey documents a new trend: paper works glued to city surfaces. The author is a graffiti artist who traveled around the world surveying street art: some eighty artists' works are profiled in over 7,000 examples of this new 'paper art graffiti, providing both a historical survey and insights into the special demands of the new 'adhesive art' medium. Any art library holding will find this an excellent and unique acquisition.

9 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Enrique de la Huelga on June 18, 2007
Format: Paperback
An interesting and well-designed catalog of an emergent art form. I still consider most "Street Art" to be just a notch above blight and usually an eyesore, but this book revealed an imaginative world of design and artistic improvisation. Too bad Banksy's too much the recluse to be profiled here, but his absence is made up for by the wide survey of international "stars." Now I've caught myself paying more attention to the visual "noise" around me, looking for sly creative expressions. Too bad most of the graffiti, scratchiti, and tagging I see is still craptacular, and nowhere near as the intriguing as what's shown off in this book.

This entertaining, inspirational book is divided into three chapters.

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.
