In Fine Style: The Dancehall Art of Wilfred Limonious


Out of stock


This hardback was originally published in 2016 as an accompaniment to the art exhibition exhibition by Christopher Bateman and Al “Fingers” Newman, celebrating the work of pioneering Jamaican illustrator, Wilfred Limonious (1949–99).. This is simply an absolutely crucial hardback for any serious reggae music enthusiast.

Compiled over a number of years, the book features examples of Limonious’ newspaper comic strips alongside his illustrations for the publications of JAMAL (the Jamaican Movement for the Advancement of Literacy, and his distinctive artwork for the burgeoning dancehall scene coming out of 1980s Jamaica. Includes a foreword by Beth Lesser, the Canadian photographer who immortalised the 80s Jamaican music scene (see Volcano: Revisited and Sugar Minott & Youth Promotion) and additional words from Orville “Bagga” Case and Dr Donna P Hope.

This book is out of print and out of stock in all other outlets – your last chance to pick this one up without trawling eBay.
