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...

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.

A gift for my sons birthday, he would have probably given it 5 stars...if this is your kind of thing...its brilliant. Not just the amazing photographs but the quotes as well..."So when they put the flags on the moon, how is that not tagging". This is youth culture at its best prepare to be astounded

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

I've bought a lot of street art/Graffiti books over the years, but when this book landed on my doorstep and opened it up I was expecting the same quality of publication I have come to expect. WOW!!!!!!! How wrong can a boy be? To my suprise I was not only assaulted by the quality of the imagery and layout, but the text sprang out of the book screaming. Couldn't put it down and still can't. AMAZING BOOK. If you've already bought one buy another for a loved one

Just about the best book on Street Art that I've come across. It doesn't seek to lecture, but manages to enlighten by presenting classic images of some amazing art. Worth pointing out that the book flows very well and is extremely easy on the eye in contrast to others that have tried to be over compicated.
