If you have ever taken a stroll in a major city, chances are a sticker on the back of a sign or on a light pole has caught your eye. If your curiosity was piqued and you wondered who made that tiny piece of adhesive art… this field guide is for you. There is an extremely active, highly organized, and diverse community of independent sticker artists trading stickers and putting them up all over the world. This field guide will connect you to that community.
UNSMASHED features full color photos of stand-alone stickers so you are able to have a detailed look at the diverse designs. This work includes hand drawn stickers, stenciled stickers, and screen-printed stickers to show the diversity of the methods used in independent sticker making.

Due to its respect in the sticker community the show receives entries from the most active, and elusive, sticker artists in the streets today.
