Description

Over 30 years ago, reggae exploded out of Jamaica to become a worldwide musical and cultural phenomenon. This book is a journey through the art of reggae album covers, from mento, ska and rocksteady in the '60s, to the Rastafarian influences of the '70s and dancehall in the '80s. Chris Morrow provides insights into how some of the genre's most powerful covers were created, from those with a serious message - political corruption, Pan-Africanism and nuclear war - to more lighthearted topics such as steamy dances and smoke-wreathed spliffs. With a foreword by Neville Garrick, who designed many albums for Bob Marley, and some rare covers and a select discography, "Stir it Up" is a book for reggae and music fans as well as a resource for designers and graphic artists.
