I have really a lot of street art book here at home. I have artists collection books, like the “The Art of Rebellion” books by C100, some books about single artists, but the mass are street art books about specific cities. There are “Street Art in Berlin”, “Paris Street Art”, “City Language Berlin” and others.
In this series another book recently joined. It’s entitled “Textura – Valencia Street Art”. Written by Luz A. Martín, the book describes the street art and graffiti culture of Spain’s 3rd largest city. On about 140 pages Martín placed beautiful photographs, documenting texts and seven interviews with well known street artists of Valencia.
“Martín has fixated on this specific quality of Valencia’s streets and her photographs of graffiti textures are as interesting and visually compelling as the photographs of the pieces in situ. Including many photographs of these street art textures, Textura doubles as a pattern book, making them available as royalty-free images.” (MBP)
The book is available for about $34.95. For more info, visit markbattypublisher.com.
