Lost or forgotten were the walls that now proudly carry the messages of calligraffiti artist eL Seed. Lost Walls, his first book, beautifully and poetically documents these walls, handpicked during his road trip around Tunisia. Lost Walls is a calligraffiti journey of discovery for eL Seed, who chronicles the painting of 24 walls in four weeks. Inspired by the reaction to his largest project to date, the minaret of the Jara mosque in his ancestral home of Gabes, eL Seed decided to set out on this month-long personal journey across his motherland, painting lost walls along the way. This book provides unique and rare insight into the world of calligraffiti and the Tunisian people.
