Fantastic and very controversial Stealing Banksy book, contains genuine photo images of Banksy inside, strictly limited edition and features Girl with Red Balloon removal near Liverpool Street Station, London and it's restoration, this book tells the story of what happened to it and many other iconic artworks that are now in the hands of private collectors all over the world.
Comes complete with limited edition certificate embossed and signed by the publisher, tiny edition size of just 1500 copies worldwide, book is still sealed and un-opened, book is guaranteed to be un-opened from a numbered edition.
Featured original artworks include No Ball Games, Boy With Heart, Sperm Alarm and Berlin Door.
Two rare images inside the book show Banksy himself captured by an observer actually creating the zig zag lines with roller in hand on the side of the derelict White House pub, this made the book very notorious indeed because there are no images of the anonymous artist to be found in the world, I have not shown these super rare images so you will just need to bid on the book!
Book gives a great insight into Girl with Red Balloon, thousands of Londoners walked passed it each day on their morning commute completely oblivious to it's existence as it faded from public knowledge. Tony Baxter and his company The Sincura Group was commissioned to salvage and restore the stunning piece before being offered at auction.
There will never be another Banksy, not ever, he combines humour with graffiti executed in his distinctive stencilling style, nobody will forget the Sotheby's auction when the hammer went down at £1.4 million and Girl with Balloons shredded in front of a live audience.
Perfect for the fine art collector and highly collectable book, complete with hand signed limited edition certificate by the author, book is number 139 over 1,500
