Summary

Whether yours"re a punk, skater, grafFiti artist, musician, clothing brand, political activist, Fine artist, or just a fan of a band, stickers have always been the perfect way to express oneself. Stickersfeatures approximately 4,000 stickers from the exploding, vibrant world of street art, DIY culture, music, and branding. Cheap, democratic, easy to "tag," and not always fast to fade, the sticker has been an ever-present medium-from the New York and London underground punk scene to skate culture and political expression. Celebrating the graphics of this street-art medium,Stickersillustrates the timeline of this pastime, from counterculture to politics.Stickersincludes approximately 4,000 sticker graphics organized by categories and themes, with works by such diverse artists as Raymond Pettibon and Jenny Holzer; street artists such as Banksy, Neck Face, and Barry McGee; and amateur artists who "tag" the streets anonymously. With texts from artists and writers, including Swoon, Stanley Donwood, ESPO, Clayton Patterson, Carlo McCormick, and Michael Betancourt,Stickersillustrates not only the visual and social history of sticker art but also the personal relationship that street artists and pedestrians alike have with stickers. The book includes eight sheets of stickers, most of which are original works, by artists such as Barry McGee, Ryan McGinness, and Joseacute; Parlaacute;.
