Street Messages – A New Book By Nicholas Ganz

Humans have been communicating for thousands of years by writing text in public spaces – on walls, on buildings and on roads themselves. The tradition continues today with the many street artists who work only with text. Street Messages is the first book to offer a deep insight into this literary form of expression in the world of global street art.

Street Messages provides a historic background to these public messages, and introduces more than 80 street artists from across the world.
