This unique, 100% unofficial, book is based on the free tours & location information that Martin Bull originally researched & offered to the public. It includes 65 locations of Banksy graffiti, past & present; over 125 colour photographs; information, random facts & idle chit-chat on each location; and also snippets of art/graffiti by Eine, Faile, El Chivo, Arofish, Cept, Space Invader, Blek Le Rat, D*face, & Shepard Fairey / Obey.

A few of the locations of Banksy graffiti are still just holding out (& worth visiting), but the practical tours of the past are now the graffiti history of tomorrow...so put your feet up, get your slippers on, & settle back for an historic open-top bus ride through some of Banksy's best work in three distinct areas of London...

The 4th edition has been totally updated, re-written, added to, re-designed, re-positioned, & re-priced for the emerging credit crunch generation.

A proportion of the book sales will be donated to the Big Issue Foundation(registered charity no. 1049077).  Over £27,500 has been donated so far from various sales and fundraising actvities.

 

BLT (Banksy Locations and Tours) is the new (unofficial) Banksy graffiti locations book, painstakingly compiled by Martin Bull. 170 pages, 65 locations and 100 colour photographs. I think Martin must have been a train spotter in a previous life - there's postcodes and GPS references for every location along with comments about the history of the piece or the things that have happened (hippies and strippers) when his tours have arrived at a site. It's pretty much Banksy all the way but he does include some other artists such as Eine, Dface and Blek Le Rat. It's a great little book, kind of reminds me of the little Banksy books (but a lot thicker). Ideal for reading in the smallest room in the house.

There are three walk and look tours included (Hoxton & Shoreditch, Farringdon & Clerkenwell, Waterloo, South Bank and Victoria Embankment). Some of the graffiti has already gone but a walk around any of these areas will always be interesting and you might just stumble on something new as Martin did when he found the Banksy Maid on the side of the White Cube gallery.
