Graffiti has evolved into a rich and democratic form of visual expression that is now most often labelled 'street art'.
Although the work is frequently location-specific, the genre has become a global phenomenon as the web transmits the latest works around the world in an instant.
As it matures, street art has moved indoors; galleries now exhibit and sell limited-edition prints by established artists with recognizable self-created brands, including Banksy, Blek Le Rat, Shepard Fairey, Eine and Miss Tic.
This beautiful book is the first to look specifically at street art prints - now highly prized in their own right.
It introduces the artists, symbols and subject matter that dominate the genre and places their prints in the wider context of urban art.
