“Locals had reacted strongly after municipality workers painted grey the famous “rainbow” steps, which had been orginally colored by a retired local “to put a smile on people’s faces.” “Take your brush and come,” became a call on social media websites, while thousands used the #resiststeps hashtag on Twitter and Facebook, becoming Twitter’s most trending topic.” – The Lede

“Speaking to Turkish television reporters after the stairs were painted over, Mr. Cetinel pointed out that all of nature — “cats, birds, flowers, mountains” — is brightly colored. “Where does this gray come from?” he asked. “Did we have another Pompeii and got flooded with ash?” – Daily News

“Diyarbakır Sanat Sokağı, Ankara Esat Caddesi’nde bulunan bir merdiven, İstanbul Kızıltoprak tren istasyonunun merdivenleri, Bakırköy’de bir merdiven, Ankara Konuk Sokak, Cihangir ve İzmir’de merdiven gökkuşağı renklerine boyandı.” – Baska Haber

Followers, artists and photographers have for years been asking us if we're going to print a book.
The last two years, our response have been that we will do it when we have 1 million followers on Facebook:

We are ready
We have close to 6 years of daily sharing of street art and contact with artists and photographers.
This book has all the potential to become a classic.

Time to order your book
To do the book as big, thick and colourful as possible we ask for prepaid orders!
This is not about donations or "perks" it is about paying for your book(s) now and get it sometime 2016.
The most important advantage prepaid orders give us is the option to make bigger edition of the book and there
