Graffiti and street art have been a part of urban culture for decades. From political statements to aesthetic expressions, graffiti and street art have become a popular form of public art, capturing the attention of people from all walks of life. As a result, there are now numerous books dedicated to exploring and showcasing the art form, its history, and its significance. Graffiti and street art books can be broadly categorized into three types: photo books, academic books, and how-to books. Photo books typically feature large, full-color images of graffiti and street art from around the world, often with accompanying commentary from artists, historians, and critics. These books are ideal for those who simply enjoy looking at graffiti and street art and want to appreciate the art form from a visual perspective. Academic books, on the other hand, delve deeper into the history, social significance, and cultural implications of graffiti and street art. They often include essays and interviews with scholars, artists, and activists who discuss the evolution of the art form, its relationship to urban space, and its role in social and political movements. These books are ideal for students, academics, and anyone interested in understanding the broader context of graffiti and street art. Finally, how-to books provide practical advice and guidance for aspiring graffiti and street artists. They typically include step-by-step instructions, tips on technique and materials, and examples of different styles and approaches. These books are ideal for those who want to learn the skills and techniques necessary to create their own graffiti and street art. Some of the most notable graffiti and street art books include "Subway Art" by Martha Cooper and Henry Chalfant, which is widely considered the definitive book on graffiti art, featuring photographs of New York City subway trains covered in graffiti from the 1970s and 1980s. "Street World: Urban Culture and Art from Five Continents" by Roger Gastman and Caleb Neelon is another popular photo book that showcases street art from around the world. "The Philosophy of Street Art" by Alison Young is an example of an academic book that explores the social and cultural significance of street art. And "Street Art Handbook: Graffiti and Stencils" by Tristan Manco is a popular how-to book that provides practical guidance for aspiring street artists. In conclusion, graffiti and street art books provide a wealth of information and inspiration for anyone interested in this dynamic and evolving art form. Whether you are a casual admirer, a serious student, or an aspiring artist, there is a graffiti and street art book that can meet your needs and help you appreciate the richness and diversity of this fascinating art form. An artist’s book is massively considered a 20th-century form of art, however book production dates back to many centuries ago. Artists’ books should not be confused with artists’ notes regarding specific artworks. Nowadays, they employ an extended series of forms, from traditional codex form to scrolls, concertinas or even miscellaneous items in a box. In other words, it is the artist’s intent in terms of illustration, materials, layout and design that makes something an artist’s book. Naturally, street artists have, also, transitioned to this art form, juxtaposing typical graffiti elements with those that are related to the form of a book, benefiting from the interactivity, portability, and easily shared nature of the artwork.

Purchase Nothing Exists! Limited Edition art book with graffiti street artist modern pop artworks by Cyrcle. "This is a book of poetry...NOTHING EXISTS! is an exploration of the space between all that matters. Nothing exists is a philosophical quandary, a statement comprised of absolute polarities, in which its meaning is inherently dependent on one’s perception. This composition presents us with the opportunity to think critically. Whether abstract or rational this contradiction confronts us with a perplexing challenge, testing both our beliefs and knowledge. Somewhere between something and nothing exists a space of uncertainty. This moment is immeasurable, yet more substantial than that which is tangible. Nothing exists, it is waiting to be defined. Questioning this requires faith and fact. The more we understand that nothing is something, we realize nothing exists. See blind. Hear silence. Feel the truth." - Cyrcle

Purchase California Dreams- Book & Original Drawing of Mouse Drawing Person, The Art of Stanley Mouse Hardcover Limited Edition Art Book by Stanley Mouse. Original hand drawing on the first page in graphite pencil of a mouse person hybrid drawing a stick figure, Stanley's logo and his large signature. Drawing measures about 15x10 The first comprehensive compendium of works by one of the groundbreaking pioneers of psychedelic poster art in the late ’60s, California Dreams is a career-spanning collection of 240 pieces pages created over more than five decades of nonstop artistic inspiration. Stanley Mouse is, of course, best known for the eye-popping and iconic posters, album covers and T-shirt designs he—often in collaboration with Alton Kelley—made during the hey-day of San Francisco’s counterculture renaissance and well into the 1970s. His influential work during that era captured the color, fun, mystery, passion and creatively liberating experimentalism of those tumultuous times. But this book also explores other sides of Mouse’s art, as well. Before taking Haight-Ashbury by storm, Mouse enjoyed tremendous success in his native Detroit detailing hot rods and airbrushing shirts and posters with whimsical drawings and paintings of crazy monsters and extreme cars. And more recently, in addition to satisfying ongoing demand for music-related commissions, Mouse has delved deeply into fine art, painting vivid landscapes and wonderfully evocative figurative pieces. Many of the works here have never been published before, and an added bonus is the inclusion of early versions of several of Mouse’s best-known pieces, and a glimpse into his personal

Purchase DELUXE Stay Melty Book Hand Painted Rare Limited Edition Art Book With Graffiti Street Artist Buff Monster Modern Pop Artworks. 2022 Signed & Numbered Edition of 100. 256 pages, 6.75 x 8.75”, hardcover. Handpainted & HPM Silkscreen Cover, One of A Kind Original Art As Seen In Picture. This special version of the new book features a cover that has been hand-painted by me and then silkscreened by hand. The colors of the paint and the silkscreen vary widely, so each one is truly unique (and will be shipped randomly). It's signed and numbered (in an edition of 100) on the back. Also, each book has a thick durable protective plastic cover and is presented in an elegant black fabric slip-case with metallic silver foil stamp. The first version of the book was published in 2015 by Gingko Press. That book is packed full with over 600 photos of murals, paintings, toys and everything in between. Now over 6 years later, I’ve full updated the book. From the endpapers, to the section dividers, to the content in each section, I’d say it's mostly NEW. Of the existing pages, I consolidated and edited them to make room for 6 more years of paintings, murals and editions. We also added around 30 pages to the total page count. So it’s an even denser and larger overview of all of my various artistic endeavors, and still includes the awesome essay by the legendary Carlo McCormick. This new version also has more captions than before, and even comes with a small sheet of stickers! So whether or not you have the original version, this is one you’ll want to have!
