Here is a look at vibrant stickers, tags, highly elaborate murals by both local and international artists, and a gallery of work by the artist network Pow Wow Worldwide. The images are accompanied by well-researched commentary and a history of Tokyo graffiti, positioning this book as a comprehensive introduction to the best-kept secrets Tokyo's graffiti scene has to offer.
