First published as a black-and-white artists' book by Rollo Press, this version of Marco Müller and Nicolas Sourvinos's documentation of European graffiti art collects their photographs into a stack of rainbow-colored prints made from black and white plates. The prints work with a similar performative act as the anonymous writers: through interventions on the printing machine every sheet has a slightly different color range and an unique character, almost evoking an urban landscape of a different planet.
The sheets are folded and loosely bound by a paper band, which can be removed to allow the display of the images. Each book includes a cardboard insert printed with texts taken from a website discussing the many ways in which graffiti damages the community.
