Stencil Graffiti Capital: Melbourne


On the heels of other city-specific books documenting the phenomenon, the new monograph, Stencil Graffiti Capital: Melbourne, takes a look at stencil artists in the land down under. Organized into themed sections like, "Skulls," "Symbols," and "Sexy Ladies," it also includes artist profiles, reports on Melbourne's Stencil Festival (now in its second year), and highlights include a spread that surveys Banksy's visit to Melbourne. A mix of full-bleed photos and detail shots makes for plenty of images and what feels like a thorough overview.

Available for $28 from Mark Batty Publisher.
