Exhibition catalog Oct. 7 2008
By D. A. MARTINEZ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is the typical OBEY stuff: nice design and very good edition, nice paper etc, just like the other red book from Obey.
Is focused on a show he did some time ago and contains mainly pics from that canvases, some street art he did for promo and pics from the opening.
So, if you like the Obey stuff, you'll like this one. But if this is your first book from Obey, you can get almost for the same price "Obey: Supply & Demand : The Art of Shepard Fairey" with older designs but with much more content, history etc.

the best dollar i have read! Oct. 20 2008
By Albert schweitzer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is an amazing book with some of Shepard's most greatest art! The stories are also very entertaining and inspiring. Beware for strong cravings to climb up billboards and to spread art on every white wall in your city! all around it is a superb book to have. It is definitely a book all people should have to open their eyes to what authentic art is with no pretense.

Great packaging. Nice collection of art. Obey! Nice to flip through and see all the various pieces Shepard Fairey and his shop has put out of the years.

Rad Oct. 28 2008
By JohnnyT - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I bought two copies: one to keep and one to cut up. There are so many rad pictures from Shep in this book that I knew I was going to want to make little framed pictures of them. I even thought of cutting out pictures and framing them for Christmas presents.

But enough about that -- how about the book itself? I really like the political nature of this second book. It is inspiring. I saw a show of his in LA in 2007 that had many of these art works. Since then, I have been waiting for this book to come out in print. What strikes me about Shep's art is the seemless blend on progressive politics and popular culture. It isn't too preachy (well, sometimes it is a little) and it isn't tame. The art also has the ability to penetrate deep seated hegemony -- maybe even capable of holding a mirror up to those who don't know how ugly their politics make them. We can hope.

I think Shep's art is rad in the both the hip and radical senses of that word.
