With its hundreds of photos of examples, this small book succeeds in making visible what is invisible to most of us, and once you finish reading, you'll see name tags everywhere --- and smile.
Like all books by Martha Cooper, the photographs are crisp, clear, and capture the artistry and elegance contained in graffiti tagging. If you love to study, collect or just gawk at tags on stickers, this little book is a gem.
The best way to honor the artistic ethos of those profiled in the book is to steal the book from a store, or to order it from Amazon, cover it in unrelated stickers with your name on it and return it for a full refund. It doesn't matter that the author, publisher, and merchant are harmed by doing so. After all, it's art, right?
Vexation at the subjects aside, the book does a fine job showing examples of the form. The interviews are brief and superficial, but that is quite appropriate given the ephemeral nature of the "art" and the perpetrators.
