Comment(s): This rare announcement was issued on the publication of Banky’s “Wall and Piece” book, which was released on November 3, 2005. It was sub-titled “The Collected Works of Britain’s Most Wanted Artist.” Few of these announcements survive, as book stores, which were the most targeted group, receive scores of this type of material on a weekly basis and few are preserved.
