I had this book in my wish list for quite a while. In the end, I bought up all the Banksy works I could get my hands on. This is by far the best. The others are more descriptive or somewhat basic, but this one lets the pictures speak for themselves. It leaves the reader in a sense of awe, especially considering the size and location of some of the works. How could they have been done without the artist being caught? It defies logic. But the inspiration Banksy brings, despite being in a somewhat condoned form, is one of subtle sarcasm. Whether politically motivated or not, the artist has a knack for bringing everyday irregular policies to the forefront of the reader's mind. I urge you to check out this work. At the very least, it will open you up to a new perspective of what you think you already know.

It's a huge pile of inspiration if you enjoy graffiti. Really, you'll read it and want to get out there and leave your own clever mark on someone else's property (usually the municipal government's). He's captured comedy the way many other stencilers have protest. Excellent.

Sophisticated, educated and critically involving examination of the artist known only as Banksy, his works and their place in the larger art and culture millieus and the social phenomenon surrounding his work. Highly recommended for people interested in art (pop, contemporary, urban), soceital commentary and graffiti.

I find Banksy to be witty, thoughtful and thought provoking. This is a good book - not great -but there is a nice selection of his work and the text is by the artist himself. Its a little dated by this point and many of the pieces featured are sadly long gone.

The book is really enjoyable and can be enjoyed in one sitting (the style is really entertaining to read, and it's mostly visuals). Great overview of some of Banksy's works.

How one man can become so famous with just ridiculasly good art and political views. Amazing. The captions are pure gold.
