Banksy. Wall and Piece.
(Amsterdam): Lebowski Publishers, 2009. First Dutch edition. Quarto. 238 pages. The first printing of the Dutch translation of the first monograph on the work of street artist, Banksy. Banksy is responsible for decorating the streets, walls, bridges and zoos of towns and cities throughout the world. Witty and subversive, his street art depicts monkeys with weapons of mass destruction, policemen with smiley faces, rats with drills and the iconic young girl with the heart-shaped balloon. His statements, incitements, ironies and epigrams are by turns intelligent and cheeky, with comments on everything from the monarchy and capitalism to the war in Iraq and farm animals. The volume is illustrated throughout with examples of his work over the previous ten years. A near fine copy in wrappers. Much reprinted, first printings are difficult to locate.
