Putting renowned artist Shepard Fairey (Obama “Hope”), Carlo McCormick (senior editor at Paper magazine), and DB Burkeman (DJ) in the same room together is bound to have some interesting consequences. Case in point: Stuck-Up Piece of Crap – otherwise known as Stickers Deluxe: From Punk Rock to Contemporary Art. This hardcover compendium features 4,000 stickers that run the gamut from street art to DIY culture and everything in between. The stickers are organized and categorized by theme and include works from Banksy, Swoon, Jenny Holzer, and a slew of other anonymous taggers.  If looking at the art just isn’t “street” enough for you, the deluxe edition includes 23 large, original die-cut stickers (some signed by the artist) so you can feel free to decorate, tag, or otherwise vandalize whatever happens to be within arms reach.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
