Stencil Republic is a pure celebration of the art of the stencil. The 20 stencils featured, printed on perforated card stock so that they can be cut out and used, have been created by international artists from across the street art scene, from the old masters to the new kids on the block.
Each artist has created an in-situ photograph to accompany their stencil, showing how they would use it, along with other imagery. There is also a short interview with each artist.
A collector's item in its own right, this is a book of stencils that can be used and treasured or just simply be an inspiration to others to create.

'This is a visually stimulating introduction to stencils, spraypaint and public space.'
Florence Wright, Aesthetica
'Celebrating the art of stencilling, Stencil Republic by Ollystudio features 20 stencils by 20 artists, which can be cut out and used - go on, make an artist of yourself! If you're not in any way creative, then this unique book will surely double up as great coffee table material to treasure and show visitors.'
'Ever fancied yourself as a bit of a street-art rebel, but don't quite have the nerve? Handy with a spray can, but nowhere to use it? The new Stencil Republic book, by London-based creative studio Ollystudio's Oliver Walker may be able to help. Street artist AIKO says, 'This is something you cannot learn at school ... you have to feel it, jump in, don't stop and have fun'. And so with these words ringing in our ear ... we're gleefully 'graffing' all over the cover of our A4 diary. Gosh, we're ever so street here.' Emily Gosling, Design Week
