Brooklyn Street Art Newsletter July 2010


"A must-have for anyone with serious interest in street art today"- Juxtapoz

Book Signing of Street Art New York coming Thursday, July 22

The first book-signing for the new book is coming up at Spoonbill and Sugartown, a Williamsburg Brooklyn favorite. In addition to stocking erudite, eclectic art titles, used and rare books, Spoonbill has always supported artists and the arts community.

Come and meet Steve and Jaime and some special guests from the book that Juxtapoz describes as "A genuine who's who of current renowned street artists, this book's made even better thanks to publishing by Prestel, well reputed for producing classy tomes. The paper's heavy and fantastic, image colors vibrant and rich, while the selection of photographs and artwork by Rojo and Harrington go unmatched to recent urban art updates."
