Off The Shelf

The Mammoth Book of Street Art
Edited by: JAKe
Published by: Constable & Robinson

A small book with a 'Mammoth' heart, this book is well worth a look...

With 448 pages and 73 featured artists, this cool publication hits all of the right buttons. Masses of photos and concise description of artists, we found it hard to put down. 

If there was such a thing as a Graffiti Identity Book this would be the one we would use, "slip it into your bag, go out on the street, see a piece and your not sure who's it is, get out the Street Art book and flick through it, noting the similarities of style - hay that is Mjar's work and over there a D*Face spray... it is truly ace"!!

The Mammoth Book of Street Art has full colour pages of cutting-edge street art from New York, Philadelphia, London, Berlin, Barcelona, Osaka and elsewhere. The art ranges from the vast, brightly-coloured murals of Spanish artist Aryz to work like Mobstr's monochrome text London piece and the French artist Invader's carefully sited classic arcade-game mosaics.

 Ok let's get inside and have a look...

A real ace read, this one is staying in our library for a long time to come!
