You Are An Acceptable Level of Threat

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.

228 pages, Hardcover, 8 3/4'' x 10 1/4'' ( 210 x 270 mm)
250 color illustrations, English
ISBN: 978-1-908211-08-8  $ 35.00
About the Publisher / Authors:
Carpet Bombing Logo Publisher's note
Carpet Bombing Culture is your counter-cultural publisher par excellence. Our aim is to provide you, dear reader, with premium quality art books littered with vitriolic and highly subjective comment­ary to aid you in pursuing the guerrilla warfare that is 21st century everyday life.*

We pride ourselves on having a sharp eye for the zeitgeist and remain ever poised on the margins of the maelstrom ready to leap in and snap up a subject at a moment’s notice. For this reason, our books seem to be almost supernaturally relevant and because we don’t care a fig for the norms of the publishing industry: we get our books out in half the time with twice the quality. Our discerning readers cry real tears when they discover that each book is actually more com­pel­ling than they ever dreamed it could be. Each title lovingly designed and stuffed to bursting with jaw dropping visuals and head-bending cultural commentary.

However, make no mistake; these are not history books or dim-witted collections of mediocre fan snaps. These books are designed to ignite, provoke and inspire you. They are not for the dispassionate observer. Their raison d'être? To act as a catalyst, so that you too can get involved in something, to push things forward! Who knows? Maybe you will feature in the next title?

* We make books. You buy them. Your life is better.
