Download Our New York Street Art Companion Book


/>For our street art walking tour this Sunday here in New York, we hooked up
with the Belgium artist Gaetane Michaux to produce a street art walking
“companion” of New York. Each book includes a map of downtown New York, a series
of terrific sketches by Gaetane, quotes from a series of artists including
Swoon, Vinnie Ray and Kelly Burns, pages for you to take notes on what you see,
and a series of peel-off stickers from such artists as Saru, Meet ‘n Greet,
Calma, Jon Burgerman, Ladybug, Galo, and many more. 

We’ve hand made
about 60 books to give out on the tour, but we thought we’d also make the entire
book available for download.
