Home Sweet Home is a book about Banksy, who is arguably the best-known graffiti artist in the world. Banksy is also very shifty, clandestine and surreptitious. Nobody seems to know a whole lot about the Bristol, England native. And whoever knows something is not talking. Anyway, "Home Sweet Home", says highnobiety, "is a celebration of Banksy's street art in his home city of Bristol...It is the most revealing account of Banksy's formative years and contains more than one hundred images of his Bristol art, as well as pictures of Banksy at work, many of which have never been published before."

Banksy and his work have been getting a lot of attention as of late leading some to speculate that he may choose to abandon his anonymity and go mainstream. I personally think the guy is brilliant and I love his stuff so I will be checking out the book. The tome, by the way, has been released by Tanget Books and it has 104 pages of Banksy's early works as well as a lot of material from years past.
