    So authentic a record of street art I could smell the piss on the sidewalk and exhaust from passing traffic.

  • Corbin

  • Dana

    I appreciated the balance of critical/historical and practical information presented.


  • Mano (Leslie)

    huzzah for guerrilla art!


  • Monty Python

    Gives you several stencils to have fun with-- but they're so small!


  • Stephanie Harvey

    This book rocks. Advanced stenciling or novice will enjoy this book. It has lots of great ideas and tips for all types.


  • Kristi

    Great documentation of stencil art of my favorite art forms. Also a friend of mine who is one of my favorite artists.


  • Missy

    One of my favorite examples of human expression in a nice collection. It is a controversial art form, but it is art.
