Item description for Izastikup by Microbo & Bo 130...
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.

unique kind of thing Feb 23, 2006
yo, these guys microbo and Bo130- creaters of this book have made a very unique and challenging decision to collect all that great stuff from the world and put it down in very simple way that even we- non stickers can check what is going on. great typographies, great archetypes of faces.
as far as i've seen, this is the definitive book on this subject. Feb 21, 2006
if you want to look at stickers, and not read about the history of them, that is. and that's the "graffiti" end of the stickering spectrum, not the "fuzzy unicorns in your sticker album" end. while there a couple pages written in the beginning, this book is all about looking at street art stickers collected from the world over. it's layed out like these guys just arranged the stickers on a scanner and took those scans, leaving them untouched, and bound em into a book. which is the way to go. in some cases, similar colors are grouped together, but other than that, it's pretty slap-dash, as stickering tends to be. the types of sticker vary greatly. mass-produced, one-offs, by hand, multi-color, single-color, stencilled, they're all here. you'll see things you recognize, and tons of art you don't, and you'll be astounded by the quality of all of it. 200 pages (even some blank ones for your own stix in the back!), full color, hardcover. the best of every possible world. and it even come shrink wrapped, so it's all nice and crispy when ya crack it open. for the money, you can't go wrong if you're a sticker nerd. as of now, there are no images of the inside of this book posted by the publisher, but i wil try to post a few myself, so check to see the pics. the inside of this book is it's biggest selling point.
Great Book Feb 2, 2006
Except for some spelling problems that no one would truly care about, this book is great. Full of interesting, inspirational, and some explicit/controversial art. Totally recomended.
