This book is a pure celebration of the art of the stencil. It is a book of stencils that can be used and treasured, or as an inspiration to go forth and create. The book opens with an interview with the founder of stencil art, the Paris-based artist Blek Le Rat, who has also created a stencil for the book. The 20 stencils featured are printed on perforated card stock so that they can be torn out and used. These were created by an impressive list of international street artists, from the old masters to the new kids on the block. Each artist created an in-situ photograph to accompany their stencil, showing how it was used in the street, along with other stencil work they have produced. A collector’s item in its own right, the book is popular with artists, illustrators and all those who love street art, and has been used as an educational aid in schools.
