Editorial Reviews

Review

"Stickers, long the currency of prepubescent girls, also have a protracted history as the emblem of pre-Internet subcultures, from skate to rave to hip-hop and everything in between. DB Burkeman, a 40-something ex-rave D.J. and music industry A&R man, has amassed an impressive trove and brings them together in Stickers: From Punk Rock to Contemporary Art ($35; Rizzoli). And there is nary a unicorn or a rainbow in the bunch." ~New York Times, T Magazine Blog

"For DB Burkeman, stickers are those little markers that document our culture. Whether it's the first 'Watch out! Punk is coming!' sticker slapped up on the Lower East Side in late 1970s or a 1930s R. Stanton Avery silk-screened political bumper sticker, they capture a point in time that somehow defined American culture. So it only makes sense that Burkeman, along with his partner, Monica LoCascio, got to researching the art of stickers and churned out Stickers: From Punk Rock to Contemporary Art. The 300-page book traces the visual and social history of the medium, and explores the relationship artists have with their pieces and how they communicate with viewers." ~MTV.com

I won't lie I was just interested in it for the stickers, but after reserching a little on the book I found it is really informative. I have seen these images everywhere, but didn't know what they were or what they ment. I really like all media of art work and I never thought that stickers could be contemporary art, but it really is. This was a great find of a book! Thank you.

To be brief, if you have even a passing interest in Punk Rock, Graffiti Art, Rave Culture, Club Culture, Sub Culture or just Graphic Design, this book is an absolute must have. Essays by the Authors and Shepard Fairey beautifully connect the dots from the sub culture of sticker design, production and broadcast to its influence on our every day lives. The book is wonderfully, curated, and the design on the pages is beautifully laid out. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

This book is an incredible journey through street art. So comprehensive, it is almost dizzying with the depth to which it is researched and the catalog of art included. A book for EVERY coffee table, it will be a conversation piece for years to come, as well as a resource for anyone interested in statement art/street art of the 70's,80's,90's and 2000-2010. Buy it! Great gift.

This isn't a sticker bomb type book. There are very few actual stickers. Rather, this is a survey of the sticker scene over the last few decades. There's profanity and some soft-core stuff over maybe 15% of the book. But if you can't handle this, then what are you doing looking at a book called "Stuck Up Piece of Crap" in the first place. To me, this is a badass coffee table book for people into provocative street art from the 80s forward. Maybe you were lured in by Fairey, Banksy, et al...but there are so many genius artists in here. This book is a true inspiration and one of my favorites to just pick up and leaf through. If you're an artist, you should probably just get this now.

I just got this today and I look through it and it have a amazing collection of stickers artwork. I would recommend this book if your a big fan of street art or like to get an ideas of how you want your to be. But again, this book is amazing, plus it even have a couple of stickers in the back to have for yourself, too. I'm so glad I got this.

I bought this originally thinking it was completely a sticker book like the Sticker Bomb books. I was dissappointed at first to see there's only a few pages of pretty average stickers at the back... but then once I really checked out the contents... it made up for the lack of stickers. I gave this book as a father's day present to my fella and he loved it!! He paints huge graffiti pieces on legal walls often and is a skater so this book was right down his alley. "Stickers" covered the skater scene, the graf scene and the art scene. He loved seeing many of the stickers he had as a kid as well as getting inspiration himself for things he might like doing in the future.

Lot of history here in this book, great coffee table book. LOTS and LOTS of stickers to look at. There are stickers in the back but they are original stickers made for this book and not stickers re-made from back in the day.

Its cool to see some of the stickers you use to have slapped on your deck and you wish you had. This is a easy way to have a lot of them in one place without searching for the real thing.
