Whether you’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.
Stickers features 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.
Introductory essays by Shepard Fairey and Carlo McCormick.
Celebrating the graphics of this street-art medium, Stickers illustrates the timeline of this pastime, from counterculture to politics. Stickers includes 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, and Michael Betancourt, Stickers illustrates 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 peel-out stickers, most of which are original works, by 23 artists such as Barry McGee, Ryan McGinness, and José Parlá.
*The first edition of the book is now totally sold out. We are hoping Rizzoli will do a new run but as of yet, no plans are have been announced. We now have to find our copies from secondary sellers, hence the price increase.
