Izastikup ! More than 1000 stickers are presented in this international collection of street sticker art. Featuring the works of 800 of the world's best known street-style artists--from the United States, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and South America--this book depicts the art movement that started in the underground, and is now being recognized in galleries and museums as high art. Izastikup is a rare collection of stickers as small works of art: hand made, hand painted and cut, glossy, and matte, simple and elaborate. Each page is presented graphically, in genuine sticker style, as art collages. Celebrating a diversity of styles, and methods, colors, logos, characters, comics, stencils, drawings, and the highest quality graphic design, Izastikup shows, in its unique sketchbook format, the best of globalization, and the collective imagination of diverse cultures, religions, symbols, and techniques. In addition to the author's private sticker collections, which is shown here, this book also features the hundreds of responses to an international web-based call for sticker art, as well as a few rare stickers from private collections. And, best of all, in addition to actual peel-out stickers, empty sticker-ready pages at the end of the book are a personal invitation to readers to be creative and leave their mark on the world. Or at least on a wall somewhere.
