Are We There Yet?

 

A Day Trip to Banksy's Dismaland and Other Stories

A 240 page book juxtaposing photographs of Banksy's Dismaland with the backstreets of Weston-super-Mare.

 

The book serves as a visual reminder of the biggest random art event of 2015 and indeed, the crazy year that followed.

 

Banksy said: "I loved the Tropicana as a kid, so getting to throw these doors open again is a real honour. I hope everyone from Weston will take the opportunity to once more stand in a puddle of murky water eating fish and chips to the sound of crying children."
