A Walking Novel


Stencil artists tell a love story on sidewalks. Read it while you can!


In 2007, 43 whimsical snippets of text were found stenciled onto city streets, tracing the smoldering saga of a man with a yen for a woman who only has eyes for — the moon. Depending upon which paths readers choose to follow, one can enjoy 16 different story combinations, four endings, and hike nearly four miles up and down San Francisco's hills and flats.
The mysterious duo behind the sidewalk stencils — titled "She Loves the Moon" — call themselves "The Strangers." For purposes of identification, there's the Tall Pale Stranger and the Short Dark Stranger.








Told in a new medium of storytelling that uses spraypainted stencils connected to each other by arrows- the streetscape is used as sort of an illustration to accompany each piece of text.
