Graffiti World (Updated Edition): Street Art from Five Continents Reviews
I ordered this book as a gift for someone who likes graffiti artwork as a coffee table book to keep around the house. When it came in I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the book. Its a pretty large hardcover book, that just has page after page of international graffiti with snippets about some of the more well known artists and their inspirations for some of their pieces. Really neat book to flip through and read pieces from.
My 15 y.o grandson is very interested in art and especially graffiti lettering. This is a wonderful book with amazing photos of graffiti from around the world.
This book is awesome. So many different artists are featured, and it's of the few photo collections that really draws people's interest when they're visiting my place. I love how it divides the artists by region so you can compare art styles geographically. Lots of cool blurbs about the different paint crews, as well.
A super survey of international street art
Wish photos were a higher resolution and have some on high gloss paper.
large and heavy, great examples of street art.
Very nice, colorful and full of pictures and information from around the world. Book is hardback and sturdy. Purchased as a gift for a graffiti artist. They loved it
i was a little disappointed when it arrived because they didn't package it in its own plastic bag so the back edge of the cool fold out poster/case wrap got caught on the inside of the box and tore it a little. at least that's what I'm assuming was the case, because when i received it there was a tear, and the book wasn't secured in the box so it was sliding around in a box a little too big for it.
