Providing a lasting record of the best writers on the London scene, it captures pieces that last only a matter of hours or days before they are removed. From vast free masterpieces on walls, quirky stencils on doorways and pavements, to subtle stickers, tags and signatures, London Street Art is as hilarious as it is political, and showcases some of the most current, exciting and fresh urban art forms in the world.” Volume 2: Munich/London/New York: Prestel Publishing, 2007, first edition.
