'Design Behind Desire' is a beautifully conceived book about wanting, longing, yearning, generating and fulfilling of a highly sexual and erotic nature and, as an entity within itself, becomes an object of desire as each sensuously laden page is turned. It both demonstrates and embodies desire by exploring the most beautiful objects of and for desire where integrity, beauty, sexuality and sensuality are at the heart of the creations.

Sometimes art doesn't need to be beautiful, and sometimes beauty does not need to be seen in such a particular way. Either could be said when looking at AND EVERY DAY WAS OVERCAST by Paul Kwiatkowski.

As things with Banksy go, there is a little bit of legend and myth involved with almost every piece of art and story you hear. Therefore, it makes sense that there is a new book out (published by Carpet Bombing Culture) called Banksy Myth & Legends that dissects and examines the various unsolved mysterious surrounding the UK-artist.
