9781908211309: Banksy. You are an Acceptable Level of Threat and If You Were Not You Would Know About it

Updated 2017 edition. The single best collection of photography of Banksy’s street work that has ever been assembled for print. If that isn’t enough there are some words too.
You Are An Acceptable Level of Threat covers his entire street art career, spanning the late '90s right up to 2016.
This new edition includes his groundbreaking ‘Dismaland’ show, the Calais refugee crisis wake-up, as well as new works from Gaza and Bristol. Also featuring the controversial ‘Cheltenham Spies’ in addition to ‘Girl with a Pearl Earring’, ‘Art Buff’ and the spectacular ‘Mobile Lovers’ which appeared outside Bristol Boys Boxing Club.
240 pages of iconic imagery from Los Angeles to Lewisham (and everywhere inbetween), including many images never before seen.
Much to the chagrin of art schools everywhere, it is likely that Banksy will be the best remembered artist of post-millennial-depression Britain. His capacity to grab attention and deliver a message, often with a punch line or hidden layer of meaning would have landed him a great job in an advertising agency. Madison Avenue’s loss is our gain.
If you’ve never heard of Banksy, this book is all you’ll ever need to read to be able to engage in pub table debates about the man and the legend.
When Banksy started out painting the political landscape was bleak. Fortunately now, it’s ten times worse. So as Banksy’s cheerfully aggressive political work grows ever more relevant we take a stab at presenting his art in the context of the era he was responding to, looking at the issues his work was about.
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.

Review:

You don’t really need me to tell you to buy this book; those who like Banksy will do so, those who don’t won’t and plenty more who profess to dislike him will pick up a copy and staunch a giggle as they leaf through it. It’s hard not to admire someone who does something so well doing something so well.
