All right folks, we’ve got a big fat goodie for giveaway purposes: a brand-spankin’ new copy of Patrick Nguyen and Stewart Stuart Mackenzie’s Beyond the Street: The 100 Leading Figures in Urban Art, a nearly 400-page tome that weighs as much as a small dog and features a bonanza of photographs and interviews with everyone from Blu to Swoon to Os Gemeos to Jonathan LeVine.

This sucker usually retails for $78 in the States, but the folks at Gestalten have been kind enough to supply me with an extra copy for the purposes of a reader giveaway. Y’all know the drill: leave a comment below and I’ll be contacting one lucky dog by the weekend.

C-Mon Giveaway Extravaganza: My Lonely Planet guide to Peru.


This spitting camelid could be yours. All yours.

If you were into those posts I did about surreal sights in Lima and scrumptious Peruvian cooking, all of that hard-earned research (and much, much more) is now available in guidebook form from Lonely Planet. (I helped co-author this puppy, so please buuuuy it!) I do have one extra copy on-hand, however, for a single lucky ceviche-muncher. Leave a comment below and all my Lima fine-dining secrets could be yours gratis.

Thanks for reading!
