    I love this book. It's great for any artist or anyone who has an appreciation for different medias of art. I love the focus on women and how street art for us has changed over the years.

    I'm not sure I can really count a book like this as "read" considering it's pretty much a picture book. Not only would this book look amazing on your coffee table, but it actually as very wonderful works on the inside. Anyone interested in the women greats of graffiti need to have this book.

    It's really inspiring to see just how many women produce street art despite it being a predominantly male world. Amazing ideas and styles beautifully reproduced in one book; this will stay off the bookshelf for a while...

    Talk about pure awesomeness! I really love the way this book was put together: 1-2 pages per artist or group with only a small blurb below detailing who they are, where they work and why they do it. There were also several foldouts with massive collages of work (in the book's index they have the maps of these that show which artistic design belonged to who), contact info for some of the artists (yes, graffiti can be illegal so not everyone is listed), and a nice introduction.

The most fantastic part, obviously, was the work itself! Every last one of the women mentioned in this book has a unique style from the overly cutesy to the overly butch and everywhere in between. Some work purely in black and white paint, others paint the rainbow with each tag. Some don't even use spray paint at all! A few of the artists in this book are there due to clever stickers, decals, etc. they 'tag' in there home cities on anything and everything. Overall a totally fantastic book that should be a hit for anyone who enjoys a wide variety of art styles.

    I find street art fascinating. The book writes about and shows some of the art of female street artists from all over the world. A lot of the art was very impressive. The author was very thorough and made sure to portray the artists ideas and reasons for doing their work. I found the stories of the artists interesting even though I couldn't really relate. However I thought it could have been organized better. The stories of the artists didn't say where the artist was living or where she grew up. I find street art fascinating.

I had to constantly flip back to the index at the front of the book to see where this person lived and where she was from. I found that annoying. If you are interested in learning about why artist do graffiti and street art it is worth a read.

    I sat for a long while at Barnes and Noble a few weeks back reading this. Graffiti in itself is always a fascinating art form, and to see the differences in graffiti done by women all over the world is quite interesting. There are a lot of differences that set these street artists apart from others, and it's nice to see that it has all been captured in photos and able to be shared with the world.

    Looking through this book, it's sometime difficult to remember that these are entirely female artists. Never underestimate a woman with a spray can.

    while its better than "graffiti world" it still suffers from the author trying to cram too much into one book. I like it though, enough to give it four stars. its interesting to read how many of the artists includes in the selection don't agree with separating men and women in the graffiti culture. they prefer to think of everyone simply as "writers". yet here the author is creating an entire book facilitating that separation in gender, the very thing these writers dislike.

    I've got this album as a present and absolutely loved it. A great compilation of photos of feminine graffiti art from around the world. Focused entirely on female artists. Big, chunky book, nice thick paper makes it easy to browse through the book lots of times without damaging it. Fantastic and very, very inspiring !

    I think I like seeing graffiti more in its natural environment....it was a little boring just looking at page after page of it. Don't get me wrong, they are fabulous artists....I would just rather see it walking down the street (or painted in my studio!).

    I got this book from the library because it had a section on Swoon. I was more into the street art section of the book, but it was a good introduction to something I know very little about.
