Graffiti world : street art from five continents by Nicholas Ganz( Book )
21 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and Danish and held by 1,199 libraries worldwide
Graffiti is as old as cities--from the political slogans scribbled on public buildings in ancient Roman cities, to anonymous spray-can art that began appearing on city walls in New York and Philadelphia in the late 1970s, graffiti art has stood the test of time. As hip-hop culture spread from America, graffiti became a worldwide phenomenon, emerging in the 1980s as the symbolic artistic language of young people everywhere and one of the most potent influences on youth-oriented marketing and design. Today's young graffiti artists incorporate a variety of mediums--including stickers, stencils, oils, acrylics, and oil-based chalk--as well as an ever-expanding range of social commentary. With more than 2,000 illustrations by over 150 artists from all over the world and interviews with many of them, this book is a comprehensive survey of graffiti art.--From publisher description

Street messages by Nicholas Ganz( Book )

"There is plenty of creativity within the international graffiti and street art scene. Writing text messages in public spaces has been a unique art form and a means of communication between humans for over 30,000 years. Many street artists work only with text, written messages or poems, and not necessarily only with colourful murals, styles, tags and logos. Street Messages is the first publication that delivers a deep insight into the world of global street art. Features artwork by Banksy, Dolk, Ben Eine, Faith 47, Flint., Kid Acne, Know Hope, Mobstr and many more."--Fishpond website
