Eminem And The Detroit Rap Scene: White Kid In A Black Music World by Isabelle Isling [Colossus Books]With never before seen photos and interviews and dedicated to the memory of Big Proof, the founder of D12, Eminem and the Detroit Rap Scene: White Kid in a Black Music World will take you deep into the heart of the Detroit Ghetto with Eminem, long before D12 and the Aftermath with D12.

James Palumbo - Tancredi [Quartet]Educated at Eton and Oxford, James Palumbo began his professional career in the world of finance. In 1991 he co-founded the iconic London nightclub Ministry of Sound which is now a global, multi-media business and the largest independent record company in the world. Tancredi is the eagerly anticipated follow-up to James Palumbo's critically acclaimed debut novel, Tomas (2009).

The Anthology of Rap - Adam Bradley and Andrew DuBois [Yale Press]The Anthology of Rap is an exceptional book and certainly the most appropriate present I’ve ever been given (thanks Sis!).

Children Of The Can: 25 Years of Bristol GraffitiChildren Of The Can: 25 Years of Bristol Graffiti documents the Bristol graffiti story from the early days of 3D’s New York-inspired work and John Nation's grass roots influence at the Barton Hill Youth Club to the current crop of artists who have helped to make Bristol’s graffiti scene one of the UK's most influential and diverse. Children Of The Can features the work of all the city's best-known and (until now) slept-on talent, including:

Graffiti Planet complied and introduced by KET [Michael O'Mara Books]Another 'pocket' graffiti book much in the same style of Banksy Locations and Tours. Ket the compiler is a well known graffiti artist in his own right, hailing from the New York scene. He is the founder and publisher of the magazine Stress and the worlds first hip-hop journal Elementary. In Graffiti Planet he showcases urban art from all over the world.

For any fan of Banksy’s work this book should become essential reading. Whereas Wall & Piece is official and comprehensive in detailing Banksy’s later work and stunts, and Banksy Locations & Tours by Martin Bull suited a specific purpose, but is now largely redundant due the stencils being buffed, Home Sweet Home is a celebration of Banksy’s street art in his home city of Bristol and mainly focuses on Banksy’s formative years and early works.
