Today’s stickers are the new flyers, a major means of street-based communications, and are used by the hippest advertising agencies and the most underground messengers alike. This is the first book to cover this latest street-art phenomenon, and features truly international coverage of the sticker scene. Stick ‘Em Up is a book created by the team that brought you Highflyers, Scrawl, Scrawl Too and Zines. Mike Dorrian, David Recchia and Liz Farrelly are well respected members of the street-art community, thanks to their promotion of many talented artists through their previous titles and accompanying exhibitions.
Spurred on by ground-breaking innovation from a coterie of underground artists world-wide, many of whom are renowned exponents of graffiti, the sticker craze answers a need for instant coverage via a barely conspicious action. Prepared in advance from an array of materials and techniques, including appropriated and altered labels, self-adhesive film, stencils, colour-copies and computer print-outs, these elaborate and distinctive artworks are capable of blanket coverage at street level.
