The street is in play – Banksy – Manhattan, Oct. 2013
Talk about good timing. Right on the heels of Banksy’s month-long residency in New York City comes the release of the definitive survey of international street art, The World Atlas of Street Art and Graffiti.
Published by Yale University Press and compiled by Rafael Schacter the book is organized geographically by country and city and showcases more than 100 of today’s most important street artists. It also provides the essential historical context of the works and offers contributions by the foremost authorities on street art and graffiti.
and here is Book Patrol’s favorite — The Reader, “the most active coast to coast writer in the United States…taking his enactment and imperative toward literacy across the length and breadth of the fifty states”
If you are in the New York area the launch party for the book is this Wednesday, November 20 at The Powerhouse Arena in Brooklyn.
