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’, Les Miserables in addition to new works from Gaza.

The 2015 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. If that isn’t enough there are some words too.
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.
