This is the first book to look at an increasingly popular form of street art: the 'wheatie' or wheat paste-up. Many street artists dont graffiti or stencil any more but use pre-prepared paper images that can be taken down, thereby avoiding a vandalism charge. The book will show the work of 20 artists, with photographs of their work, an article about their work and a fold-out paste-up. The fold-out pages are perforated so they can easily be removed. Some of the paste-ups will be laser cut with attaching tags so they can be popped out. There's also an introductory interview with cult street artists Sten & Lex.
