Banksy's subversive genius and astute political commentary are on full display in Desperately Seeking B**ksy, from The Flower Thrower (2003) and Kissing Coppers (2004) to ‘Bemusement Park’ Dismaland (2015) and ‘The hotel with the worst view in the world’, his brilliant Bethlehem installation The Walled Off Hotel (2017). With illuminating commentary from street art expert Xavier Tapies, and detailed maps to track down Banksy’s works, this is the definitive guide to the work of the world’s most famous — and elusive — graffiti artist.
