From the inside flap, "Graffiti art is constantly changing. Fresh coats of paint and newly pasted posters appear overnight in cities across the world....Current graffiti art is reflective of the world around it. Using new materials and techniques, it innovators are creating and original language of forms and images infused with contemporary graphic design and illustration. Fluent in branding and graphic imagery, they have been replacing tags with more personal logos and shifting from typographic to iconographic forms of communication. Subverted signs, spontaneous drawings, powerful symbols and curious characters represent a worldwide outdoor gallery."

This book mainly focuses on artists based in Europe and the US, who have abandoned the traditional graffiti text tag for graphic logos or art pieces. Highlights individual artists with photos of their work and a couple paragraphs about their start and philosophy. My favorites were the pixelated Eiffel tower, the space invader mosaics, the plugs, and the art of urban warfare army guys.
Super Fun book to just flip through.
