    Unlike woven fabrics, where strands usually run straight horizontally and vertically, yarn that has been knitted follows a looped path along its row, as with the red strand in the diagram at left, in which the loops of one row have all been pulled through the loops of the row below it.

    Thread used in weaving is usually much finer than the yarn used in knitting, which can give the knitted fabric more bulk and less drape than a woven fabric. This should ensure an even coat of adhesive to both parts, which will help it adhere better. The lower red course is knit into the white row below it and is itself knit on the next row; this produces 'stockinette' stitch. With the help of renowned writers and critics such as Carlo McCormick, Steven Heller, Henry Rollins and many more, the page book, brimming with excellent photography, stunning art and high quality pages, offers an insight into the colorful life and work of Shepard Fairey. In this way, the book encompasses everything from Brazilian murals to simple tags on mailboxes, from Shepard Fairey in Los Angeles to Anthony Lister in Australia.
