<strong>2024</strong> v3

Hey there!<br />

You might recognize us as the crew behind the renowned Stickerbomb<br />

series. But as our ideas expanded, we realized we needed a space to house<br />

all our creative concepts. That’s where <strong>Soi</strong> <strong>Books</strong> comes in. “<strong>Soi</strong>,” meaning<br />

“street” in Thai, embodies our dedication to exploring urban culture, from<br />

street photography to art and everything in between.<br />

Our story traces back to our roots in crafting documentaries, diving into a<br />

myriad of topics, subcultures, and stories, shaping them into compelling<br />

films. Some of our cherished projects include “Bassweight: A Dubstep<br />

Documentary,” “Rackgaki: Japanese Graffiti,” “Soka Afrika,” delving into<br />

human rights issues and immigration, and “Foul Play,” exploring corruption<br />

in Asian football.<br />

CATALOGUE <strong>2024</strong> v3<br />

Amid our immersion in the world of film and advertising, we were also<br />

deeply involved in the creation of illustration and art books with Laurence<br />

King Publishing. Laurence and the entire LKP team were instrumental in<br />

our creative evolution, molding us into authors and nurturing our journey<br />

into becoming publishers. Their influence not only shaped our work<br />

in television, film, and advertising but also significantly impacted our<br />

approach to curating art and stories.<br />

It was within this nurturing environment that the Stickerbomb series was<br />

born. With over 10 books and a global readership of around 400,000<br />

to 500,000, it became a cornerstone of our creative expression. Our<br />

endeavors expanded to encompass street art books and an eclectic range<br />

of gift and stationery titles.<br />

This rich tapestry of experiences prompted us to embark on a new path<br />

in publishing. The essence of our documentaries and our anthropological<br />

approach form the core of every book we craft. As a global team, with<br />

members spanning the UK, Europe, Asia, and the US, the success of the<br />

Stickerbomb series enables us to offer artists solutions that foster their growth.<br />

Whether we’re collaborating with a graffiti artist in Indonesia or curating<br />

a book on craft beer stickers, <strong>Soi</strong> <strong>Books</strong> remains dedicated to sharing a<br />

distinctive viewpoint on subcultures, artists, and, of course, stories.



The latest in the super-successful Stickerbomb<br />

line of urban art sticker books. This new book<br />

of fully peelable stickers brings together the<br />

best in today’s craft label brewing design and<br />

illustration from around the world. From super<br />

slick minimal design, wild and wacky illustrations<br />

to raggedy type, The Craft Beer Sticker Book<br />

presents an exploration of the visual culture<br />

behind indie brewing. Featuring over 300 stickers<br />

from 40 microbreweries near and far including<br />

Admundsen, Basqueland, Exale, To-øl and more.<br />

The Craft Beer Sticker Book explores the eyecatching<br />

visuals breweries use to make their<br />

beer stand out. With key interviews that spotlight<br />

designers at the forefront of brewing, this sticker<br />

book is an indispensable collection for any beer,<br />

Super Strike presents a behind the scenes<br />

perspective of one of Japan’s leading graffiti<br />

writers and urban artists. Hailing from Hiroshima,<br />

Suiko’s art has allowed him to travel extensively.<br />

Super Strike is a rare glimpse into his personal<br />

life as he likes to spin tunes, skateboards and<br />

illustrate manga comics. Super Strike presents his<br />

artistic versatility, highlights the global demand<br />

for his work and presents a dialogue between<br />

his Japanese heritage, his artistic influences and<br />

the communities he visits and collaborates with.<br />

Super Strike is a unique document that exists to<br />

educate and inspire.<br />

Suiko [ 酔 狂 ] means “Fool on the planet“ in<br />

Japanese Kanji lettering, and Suiko embodies this<br />

in his dynamic and fluid artwork. His style uses<br />

irregular shapes, bold colours and cutting lines<br />

which work alongside his deconstructed Kanji<br />

letters. He fuses this calligraphic visual language<br />

with themes from Japanese wood-block printing<br />

and modern European graffiti. Growing up in<br />

and around Hiroshima he has spent his years<br />

developing into one of his country’s best-known<br />

graffiti writers and continues to be inspired by<br />

Hiroshima and the freedom of graffiti and its<br />

potential as an expressive art form.<br />

Through The Eyes Of The Monster is a deep dive<br />

into the world of Darbotz, an artist from Jakarta,<br />

Indonesia, who loves his city despite its chaos and<br />

traffic jams. In fact, it’s those very challenges that<br />

inspire his work. Meet Cumi, Darbotz’s alter ego,<br />

photographs of Tania’s life in Arequipa and<br />

her wide range of artwork where she explores<br />

Andean imagery and broader Latin American<br />

visuality. Till We Meet Again highlights her<br />

versatility as she moves freely between engraving<br />

and illustration. She presents a dialogue between<br />

herself and her Peruvian heritage - her black and<br />

white powerful direct dark lines that expose the<br />

light, her skulls and the characters she creates are<br />

reclaimed as Peruvian art. Till We Meet Again is a<br />

unique document that can educate and inspire.<br />

Tania Brun works across printmaking, woodcuts,<br />

linocuts, embroidery and illustration. Hailing from<br />

Arequipa, Peru, her work explores life, death,<br />

loss, humour, and consistently explores ways of<br />

disseminating Latin American visual culture. Her<br />

close relationship to the punk rock scene of Peru<br />

is expressed through her album covers, and she<br />

is influenced and taught by outstanding Peruvian<br />

painter Luis Solorio. Within her work are elements<br />

from colonial Peruvian paintings and she takes<br />

huge inspiration from Andean imagery.<br />
