Book Description

5 Aug 2008
Not to be filed under history, photography, design or non-fiction, as it contains outright lies and outrageous subjective opinion, this book is definitely about street art. It is also about now. Fungus grows on your collected wild-style pioneers. Vile passions rage between old schools and new. Stuff flies out from under the hammer at auction houses and property developers fund street art shows to liberal press fanfare. Oh, and Banksy hits the West Bank. Is anyone taking this thing seriously? Should it be taken seriously? Is it all just an immense daisy chain of poker faces, irony and mind games?

Review

I've got every darn book printed on the scene including my now much revered first edition of Faith of Graffiti by dear dead Norman Mailer and this magnificent tome beats them all, even anything by El Banksy. Really it's a great book, part fiction, part document, it's in a category all of it's own. --Beautiful Crime said:

This one I'd reference as tasty popcorn and perhaps there lies its zeitgeist and achievement. There's loads of great artwork inside and the pictures are well shot. The random stops, texts and sort of useful via useless explanation in things did get addictive. I raced through them. I didn't close the book til I'd gotten through it all.
The book feels like a well communicated poem. Pictures and words interacting to create a commentary that is punk enough to follow its own drum. --Modart

A completely different take on the graffiti book with this trip around the worlds best street art. Where else can you find a line such as "So when they put the flags on the moon, how is that not tagging"?
All in all its in a class of its own and all the better for it. --UKStreetArt

5.0 out of 5 stars Graffiti Aid 28 Jun 2012
By PCP
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Great selection of 'street art' pictures, some thought provoking reading, particularly like 'Graffiti Aid' which sums up my thoughts on TV Charity Aid. If you really care about world issues do something about it other than just pick up the phone put a few quid on your Credit Card and relieve your middle class guilt for the evening...the money would be better spent on this book or a little adventure, maybe even some spray paint...

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant... 9 Aug 2008
By LB
Format:Hardcover
This is so much more than a cofee table book. It has wonderful pictures that keep you turning the pages and draws from all the names you know and several you don't, but they are only half the story. What makes this book is the accompanying text which makes every page a discussion point, even if it's only in your own head.

Superb...

This is a really well produced book full of wonderful images of street art.
It is very clear that it has been written by people with a genuine love of the genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Art for the masses 20 Dec 2010
By Sam
Format:Hardcover
I bought this for my daughter as she is doing art a level and after a recent trip to brighton and seeing Banksy's kissing police men and George Best she was really interested in street art so i got her the book, i could never really get the point of grafetti at the time,but after flicking through the book i looked at it again more in depth and was really impressed and blown away by some of the images in this book,
This book is really a good quality book with amazing photographs I would encourage people to buy it and see if your mind can be changed
