The Mammoth Book of Streetart

Mammoth Book Of Street Art

The latest publication to join the Hookedblog bookshelf is The Mammoth Book of Street Art.Published by Constable & Robinson and edited by graphic artist JAKE, a long time friend of ours here at Hookedblog.

The book presents a collection of photographs from JAKE's personal archives with a little help from us here at Hookedblog. Having originally had his studio on Rivington Street in London way back when, JAKE found himself right in the middle of it all back when this part of London was completely bombed with street art and graffiti. Having now moved outta the area, JAKE asked us earlier in the year to contribute some of our photos to help him fill the gaps in the book. We were more than happy to help as his selection of artists include many whose work we admire here at Hookedblog.

This mammoth book is over 440 pages of full colour with 70 plus artists featured including some of the following Nuria Mora, Micrbo, Bo130, Eltono, Kid Acne, Dscreet, Ronzo, Faile, Swoon, Remi Rough, Conor Harrington, D*Face, Eine and Banksy.

The publication retails at £10.99 but you can find it here on Amazonfor just £7.69.

For someone with no knowledge, it gives an interesting glimpse at the street art on offer, but it would also make a good collection for those already interested.
