“Street Art” by Ed Bartlett: A Quick Primer for the World Traveler

Since the early 70s Lonely Planet publishing has made guidebooks for travelers of the world, enabling people to gain a greater understanding and to appreciate localities, cultures, and histories. Ed Bartlett now adds to this vast compendium of understanding a concise and varied survey of Street Art from his vantage point as an avid bicyclist, traveler, and expert on Street Art.

The modest sized and easy to carry hardcover is a quick read that crosses 42 cities, selected pieces from each, and interviews with artists as well. An accessible and attractively illustrated collection of photographs and text, it is a good introduction to the reader of casual interest and an apt primer for those who don’t have much time to immerse themselves but would like to get a solid foundation on this global phenomenon of Street Art, graffiti, and art in the streets in general.
