Wall to Wall: Mural Art around the World

Mary Ann Fraser

An exciting tour of remarkable wall art around the globe, from prehistoric caves to futuristic wonders.

People have been drawing on walls since ancient times. They do it to create beauty, to tell a story, to make a statement, or just to say, “I was here.” You can find wall art in a remote cave in Patagonia and a desert castle in Jordan, a kingly palace in the Republic of Benin and the National Palace of Mexico, a miles-long flood channel in Los Angeles and a sky-high rooftop in Norway.

In Wall to Wall, award-winning author, illustrator, and muralist Mary Ann Fraser takes readers on a worldwide journey through time, stopping to see amazing mural art along the way. Stunning color illustrations and fascinating photographs illuminate both famous and little-known examples, and lighthearted text tells engaging stories about the people who inspired or created them. A glossary, selected bibliography, and section about the preservation of murals conclude the book. No reader will ever again pass by a mural—whether in a historic building, a museum, or out on the street—without stopping to take a closer look.

Ages ten to fourteen.

Mary Ann Fraser is an award-winning writer and illustrator of over seventy books for young readers. She is also a professional muralist.

“This informative book seems especially well suited to kids with an interest in public art, graffiti, or street art, ages 9 and up. Once you are aware of the prolific nature of street art and murals, you’ll start spotting them all over the cities where you live or visit.”
—Jill Swanson, orange marmalade
