Going Postal

Going Postal by Martha Cooper
Street art takes many forms, including simple tags, throw ups, full color pieces, wheat pasting, stickers and even yarn bombing. Some street artists are purist where they only partake in one form of street art, where many of them do a combination of different mediums. Most of the time, the main objective is getting up and getting noticed.

Going Postal is a little larger than a pocket sized book written and contains photographs by Martha Cooper. You don't know who Martha Cooper is? Along with Henry Chalfont, she was responsible for one of the first and most famous graffiti books, Subway Art, which was published 25 years ago.
Going Postal by Martha Cooper
Going Postal focuses on a little known street art that is solely done on postal stickers. The beauty of these stickers are that each one is hand made. Some artists use stencils, some cut out shapes and some just simply tag on them. The book has pictures from New York City, Philadelphia, Tokyo, San Francisco, Berlin, Amsterdam and Cologne.
