In Stencil Graffiti, the first book to examine comprehensively this design phenomenon, Tristan Manco traces the history of stencil art and provides an exciting and thorough overview of the medium. His introduction traces the history of the form, from cave paintings, Chinese silks and Egyptian pyrami ds to Art Nouveau pochoirs and the Pop art forerunners of stencil art, and then proceeds to a specific history of Stencil Graffiti, tracing its genesi s in the Italian fascist propaganda of the 1940s and Basque and Mexican pol itical protests of the 1970s, and examining Stencil Style (typography, func tional stencilling, street signage, advertising, decoration). The core of t he book is the state of Stencil Graffiti today, from Pop Art to individual street artists' work plus spreads arranged by theme/subject. Editorial Reviews.
