"I saw this opportunity to reclaim the space on these rooftops ans reexamine graffiti" said Steve powers, who grew up in Philadelphia.

 

A documentary film will be produced, and 2 books documenting the project. One of the books will be a small paperback that will be distributed to area businesses free of charge, for them to sell to visitors. The other book will be a larger hardcover book that will document not only the artwork, but the neighborhood and the inspirations of the Love Letter Project.
