Lonely Planet, known as the largest travel guide book publisher in the world, recently released a new book entitled Street Art, which features some 140 street art scenes in 42 cities worldwide.

From iconic stencils and vibrant mosaics to exquisite murals, this visual guide provides practical details and maps of where to find secret stashes of street art, and introduces key artists, festivals and locations, according to the publisher.

"Street art is now present in almost every city, town and village in the world," said its chief editor Ed Bartlett. "And given that the first record of homo sapiens painting on walls is thought to date back around 40,000 years, it's surprising that street art has taken so long to flourish."

Here are some of the street art destinations collected in the book.
