Graffiti artists use a variety of materials in their work - stensils, paint, stickers, wheatpaste. But now they are adding yarn!

Yarn is wrapped, knitted or otherwise used to decorate (or tag) buses, street signs, mailboxes or really anything that a regular tagger would hit. What will they think of next?!

I tried to find books on the subject. There is only one and it is about to be released. Here is the link: Yarn Bombing: The Art of Crochet and Knit Graffiti
