Trespass – A History Of Uncommissioned Urban Art

The book by Carlo McCormick and published by TASHEN is out in October and is highly recommended.
Here’s an excerpt from the introduction written by Banksy:

To some people breaking into property and painting might seem a little inconsiderate, but in reality the 30 square centimetres of your brain are trespassed upon every day by teams of marketing experts. Graffiti is a perfectly proportionate response to being sold unattainable goals by a society obsessed with status and infamy. Graffiti is the sight of an unregulated free market getting the kind of art it deserves.
