Banksy You Are An Acceptable Level of Threat (Updated 2016 Edition)

ISBN: 9781908211309

Author: Gary Shove    Publisher: Carpet Bombing Culture

Updated to include new work, the 2016 edition of Banksy You Are includes his groundbreaking ‘Dismaland’ show, the newly created Bristol Bridge Farm Primary School piece, the Calais refugee crisis wake-up ‘Steve Jobs’, as well as new works from Gaza. Also features the controversial ‘Cheltenham Spies’ piece as well as ‘Girl with a Pearl Earring’, ‘Art Buff’ and the spectacular ‘Mobile Lovers’ which appeared outside Bristol Boys Boxing Club. The 2016 updated edition also includes his 2004 bronze statue ‘Justice’ and also features his groundbreaking October 2013 residency in NYC. The single best collection of photography of Banksy’s street work that has ever been assembled for print. This book seeks to concentrate on his iconic imagery spanning the past decade, from Los Angeles to Lewisham (and everywhere inbetween), including many images never before seen. However, make no mistake; this is not a dull history book or dim-witted collection of mediocre fan snaps. This book is designed to ignite, provoke and inspire you - and is a work of art in itself.
