Most passports, no matter which country they've come from, tend to conform to a set of standard dimensions, which is what makes this Above Passport look particularly iconic. Not designed to contain identifying information concerning a citizen of the United States of America, the publication is actually a compelling picture book of graffiti from around the globe.

What many of the 120 color plates have in common is that they display the work of the street artist known as Above, who has produced roughly 15 years worth of impressive murals in countless cities internationally. As a bold way to compile his extraordinary pieces, Blaine Fontana has blown up photographs for the pages of the Above Passport as an examination of the artist's style with input from his peers.
