Stuff We Like: PE3L Magazine

It started out as a humble 1/2 size black and white photocopied zine back in 2003 documenting street art with a focus on stickers. In the time since then, PEEL Magazine has grown up into a glossy, internationally distributed publication featuring the work of some very cool sticker artists from all over the world.

Originally inspired by the “Andre the Giant has a Posse” stickers Dave and Holly Combs encountered all over New York City when they traveled from Indianapolis, Indiana, to help with the Sept. 11 recovery, the couple set out to document a powerful new subset of street art, and in the process may have created something of movement themselves. Each issue of PEEL features sticker art, interviews with artists, and even free, super-cool art stickers (29 in the latest, Issue 8)--i.e., pages upon pages of stickers for grown ups. How cool is that?

PEEL even has its own book, PEEL: The Art of the Sticker, and now, an upcoming documentary film by award winning filmmaker Brian Dockter--proof of just how far street and sticker art has come in the last seven years.
