This is a nice hardcover book about – you guessed it – Street Art in Valencia, the third biggest city in Spain. The author Luz A. Martin took plenty of photos of street art in her hometown. And she did also asks 7 of the more popular artists (End, Escif, Graffilia, Julieta, Nero, On_ly, Sam3) from Valencia the same five questions. Intersting to see the differences in the answers, but also some similarities. My main problem with this book is: I don`t think she documented outstanding or super interesting street art, sorry.

Some of the work is of course great, but a lot of it I would not put in a book. Now the question would be: is there no „better“ street art in Valencia, or did Martin just selected what I don`t like too much? Well, at least one gets a good short story about the city and its history and you get to see a lot of really well done photos of (sometimes not so interesting) street art. With the book comes a download code for free texture images download. 150 pages in english and spanish. (dolf)
