This is the first book to look at an increasingly popular form of street art: the “wheatie” or wheat paste-up. Many street artists don’t 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.

• Contains 20 artworks by some of the world’s most talented street artists: just tear them out and paste them up anywhere
• Highly original concept: the first book to examine this form of street art
• Features interviews with each artist and images of the paste-up in situ
• Innovative follow-up to The Street Art Stencil Book
