Banksy Books Are Here!
About a year ago, anonymous English street artist Banksy painted a piece on an abandoned gas station in Ensley (see Birmingham Weekly story about it here.) The controversial piece lasted only about a day and a half before it was stolen. Banksy did the piece during a tour across the US that was centered around doing a lot of Hurricane Katrina themed pieces in New Orleans around the third anniversary of the storm.
The nonfiction department recently added two Banksy books to the collection so you can read more about the underground art icon that graced our fair city with his art:
