Inhaltsangabe zu "Banksy."

Banksy is the closest thing we have to Che Guevara. Except, as far as we know, he's never flunked medical school, shot anyone or attempted to foment revolution in the Congo. You will find, gathered lovingly together, in this book - the single best collection of photography of Banksy's street work that has ever been assembled for print.

We don't bother. We're more interested in his prolific work on the streets, which for the most part has been lost to future generations through greed or the dreaded buff. Consequently, 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 dimwitted collection of mediocre fan snaps. This book is designed to ignite, provoke and inspire you - and is a work of art in itself.§So hopefully when Palestine is a free state and school kids of the future wonder why Banksy went to Bethlehem, it will all be clear.§Banksy goes to Bolivia to s
