"Breaking the mold is exactly what street art needs today, and Morley seems to be that bit of unpretentious breath of fresh air."
"Morley's piece are much more than slogans. He has something to make you think about, and he does this in a very effective and funny way"
- Claude Crommelin (from New Street Art)
"Morley has a unique gift for what he does. When it comes to artists on the streets, nearly everyone uses words, but no one uses them so well. Morley's street poetry is poignant enough to cause a person to think, and packaged short enough to be consumed in a moment. Morley is a poet of the Streets. Those are our words, not his. Morley would probably find a better way to phrase it."
"Poetic and insightful, Morley’s art captures truths, hardships, and the quirkiness of the human condition."
- G. James Daichendt, Author of Stay Up! Los Angeles Street Art

You should buy this book. Because I bought this book as soon as I saw it announced, and I only buy books that I'll read/look at more than once. I wanted this one. I expect I'll page through it from time to time, save perhaps those rare occasions of extreme and unparalleled joy, and in paging though this book be reminded that someone else feels the way I do. And if I'm really being honest, I bought the book because I think it might be a step on Morley's journey to becoming hugely successful such that I will never, ever be able to afford one of his pieces. Good for him. And good thing I bought a bunch of his stickers.
As an artist Morley is thought-provoking, and as a writer he is even more poetic and poignant. The stories that accompany the artwork that we see on the streets every day give new meaning to his work, and are at turns hilarious, heartbreaking, and inspiring (not to mention relatable).
If you've ever seen one of Morley's posters while driving and wondered who is behind them and what drives him to spread his messages across the city, IF YOU'RE READING THIS, THERE'S STILL TIME will no doubt leave you with an even greater appreciation for this vigilante of hope.
"If You're Reading This, There's Still TIme" takes us inside of Morley's brain, walking us through a series of a Q&A with him, helping the reader access his creative process, something not typically accessed in street art, especially in the secretive world of Banksy and other popular street artists.
This book makes a great gift for an art lover, a thinker, a new graduate, somebody who might be facing a hard time in life who needs encouragement, or a good present for yourself. I've got it on my coffee table, and literally every person who has come over in the last three weeks since I bought it has picked it up, looked through it for ten minutes and said "Holy crap this is so cool."
I can promise you that you won't regret buying this book.
It's really just a clever and thoughtful book to enjoy.
