An outstanding new book on the subject of art. This book looks at the often overlooked subject of the sketchbook as integral to the artistic process. The images and artworks included are contemporary and provide a new perspective on the subject. This book is written with creativity, commitment and integrity and would be an invaluable resource for all art students and artists.

absolutly unbelieveable! i cannot believe that such a quality book is being sold at such a low price. some amazing street artists (not just ur run of the mill graffiti artists) from around the world all with some very unique styles, using schools such as fine art, graphics and illustration.

i was going to go down to my local book shop and pay £30 for this but i amazed to see it here for a lot less! definatly worth a look for any art student wanting a modern perspective on some styles.

I bought this book a year ago now, and let me say it has been read and re-read many a time, showcasing plenty of street artists, but not much of their street art, their actual rough sketchbook work where they get the ideas for the big wall pieces, the drawings are amazing and there is plenty of variety and loads of pages, and at 9.97!? Bargain. I promise you if you like illustration and street art, and probs graphic design as a whole you will love this book and it is amazing, I only wish i could find more like it.

If you like your street art books big, fat, hardback, and packed with colour pictures, then you'll love this.

There is some text, but you'll have to look for it among pages and pages of colour prints of sketchbook pages and finished works from dozens of the big names in street/urban art.

Many of the artists featured aren't my style so this is not my favourite street art book, but that's an issue of personal taste. I can't fault the book, which is a bargain. It even has nice rounded corners, which make it nice to thumb through.

This book was everything I expected it would be. Having already got the first of the Street Sketchbooks I was keen to see more developmental work and this provided it in spades. For anyone more interested in the raw, more paper-based side of things this book has a lot to give and as an artist who works more on paper than brick walls I still found it very inspirational. There is a broad range of styles on offer and the artists included come from all over the world making for a fascinating glance not only at street art but local politics and culture as well, all filtered through vivid imaginations. The images range from rough sketches to beautifully photographed finished pieces and the accompanying text is informative and inspirational. A must have for anyone who creates or appreciates!

I bought this book as a present for someone creative and I was really impressed with it. It's chock full with pictures and ideas and inspiration. It also covers a wide range of artists from all over the world with lots of different styles so there is something for everyone, even me, and I'm not particularly into street art.
