This version of Marco Müller and Nicolas Sourvinos's documentation of European graffiti art (first published as a black-and-white artists' book by Rollo Press) collects the artists' photographs into a stack of rainbow-colored prints made from black and white plates. These are folded and loosely bound by a paper band, which can be removed to allow for the display of these images, whose strange colorations suggest the urban landscape of another planet. Each book includes a cardboard insert printed with texts taken from a website discussing the many ways in which graffiti damages the community.
