Camden Noir readies for Volume 2 of LABEL 228

First volume of Label 228, published by Soft Skull Press, 2009

The priority mail label, Label 228, has become the canvas of choice for thousands of artists and sticker heads. When I was down in Washington DC last month, I met up with Camden Noir, an artist with a passion for postal sticker art. A few years back, Camden put out a call for artwork fashioned on priority mail labels. The result was the book LABEL 228: A Street Art Project, one of my all-time favorite collections of sticker art.  Camden is at it, once again, seeking original artwork on priority mail labels for a second volume of his book. Submissions can be sent to: Label 228 Project, 56 Miller Street, Cortland, NY 13045.
