Following the curious runaway success of his original self-published book, Martin Bull has now totally updated, re-written, added to, re-designed, re-positioned, & re-priced the book for the emerging credit crunch generation.
This unique, 100% unofficial, book is based on the free tours & location information that Martin researched & offered to the public in 2006. A few of the locations 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...See all Product description

they are both well worth the cost! both books are filled with loads of great photos and info about the banksy works in the uk. volume 2 actually covers areas beyond london with a walking tour of bristol and some pieces in manchester, birmingham and glasgow. (one word of advice, these pieces disappear fast, so don't be too shocked if you go to see a piece and it's gone. this happened to me in glasgow)
the author has done a great job researching the contents of the book. he's laid it out well and made it very easy to follow the directions to find/see the art.
as well, the book covers little bits of trivia about banksy and other cool street artists such as shepard fairey, invader, eine, faile and inkie.
one key point is that volume 2 is a totally new book and actually works as a companion piece to volume 1. so a keen fan is best to buy both as there's no overlap between the two.
It helps you find the exact locations for the graffiti, but as another reviewer mentioned, graffiti is an endangered species, so you must be quick and see the pieces while they are not drawn over or covered by authorities.
I found almost all of them on my trip to London and the book really helped me get closer to the artist and his works!
The author did a great job!
