Invasion of the U.K. is the third book published by Space Invader in 2007, after his Paris and Los Angeles invasions. As for the other two books, this one serves dual duty as beautifully executed artist's monograph and a travel guide to the invasion of England full of photographs, location maps, complete archive of invasions and an index.

Space Invader has been putting up vibrant mosaic installations based on the pixelated forms of the eponymous characters from the classic 80's video game for over a decade now. Cities around the world bear the mark of "invasions"; rewarding observant passersby with his mini exhibitions, and literally going over the heads of everyone else.
