Billboard Bandits: A Kickstarter You Don’t Want to Miss

We highly recommend that you jump on this Kickstarter project before it's too late. Check out the preview, if you're like us you'll know right away that this a project worth supporting and a book you need on your shelf.

From the project description:

The purpose of this Kickstarter is to give me the ability to publish my book, “Billboard Bandits – Outlaw Artists in the Sky”. This book is unlike any other in its genre, delving deep into the worlds of graffiti and street art yet focusing on the fascination with conquering billboards. While graffiti itself is illusive in nature, billboard graffiti takes it a step further as one of the most daring aspects of the craft. The book itself is completed and includes photos and interviews from artists all over America and the UK. The first hand accounts enable the reader to feel present in the world of these individual artists. Some of them are raw and gritty vandals while others provide more of a fine art feel. They specialize in everything from integrating their pieces into the advertisement itself to adding their artwork to the blank billboard back. A select group of these street artists are referred to as “billboard liberators”, manipulating the ads to fit their own agenda and convey their message. While each one is unique, they are united by one common thread - they are the billboard bandits.
