We wrote about this more than two years ago, but it’s about time for a refresher!

Once upon a time, artist Camden Noir came up with a community street art idea. Dubbed the Label 228 Project, the idea encouraged any artist to draw, paint, sketch, collage, or otherwise put their imprint on the free priority mail stickers one can find at any local branch of the U.S. Post Office.

Street artists from around the world participated, and after months upon months of shopping around to look for an independent publisher, Noir and his project were finally picked up by Soft Skull Press. Full color and glossy from cover to cover, the book is like a street art rendition of PostSecret, featuring over 1,500 labels from over 500 artists — including Zoso, Matt Linares, Mecro, Mat Curran, and Daniel Fleres, to name a few. Artists formerly written about in REDEFINE who make an appearance in the book include Aaron Kraten, Max Kauffman, and Parskid. You can now buy the book on Amazon.com!
