New Book: BANKSY. You Are An Acceptable Level of Threat



You Are An Acceptable Level of Threat

Distributed by GINGKO PRESS
Compiled by Gary Shove and Patrick Potter

The single best collection of photographs of Banksy’s street work period.

Banksy — You Are An Acceptable Level of Threat concentrates on this singular artist’s iconic imagery, spanning the late ’90s up until the end of 2011.

The locations are from around the world (predominantly the UK, US and Europe), and many images have never been seen before. When Banksy started out painting, the political landscape was bleak. Fortunately now, it’s ten times worse.
As Banksy’s cheerfully aggressive political work becomes ever more relevant, this comprehensive tome sets about presenting his art in the context of the era he was responding to.
