Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Today stickers are the new flyers, and a major means of street-based communication, used by the hippest advertising agencies and the most underground messengers alike. This is the first book to cover this latest street-art phenomenon.

Synopsis:

Stickers are the new flyers: street-based communication used by the hippest advertising agencies and the deepest underground artists from San Francisco to Berlin and Antwerp to Tokyo. This is the first book investigating the latest street-art craze, which answers a need for instant coverage via barely conspicuous action. The book shows why these stickers are capable of blanket exposure at street level. Looked at in close-up, with time for more than a glance on the street, they are distinctive artworks prepared from an array of materials and techniques including appropriated altered labels, self-adhesive film, stencils, spray-paint, colour-copies and computer print-outs.

Compiled by the authors/designers that created Scrawl and Scrawl Too, the book includes stickers culled from trips world-wide, and sets rare examples from respected graffiti artists alongside interventions by anonymous creators. These messages are subversive, imaginative, amusing and often-times intriguingly coded... here, for the first time, you have the chance to enjoy them at your leisure.
