During the 1980s Wilfred Limonious (1949a "99) became one of Jamaican musica (TM)s most prolific graphic artists, designing countless reggae album jackets and record-label logos. With silly characters, scribbled commentary and outrageous Patois-filled speech bubbles, the world he created was the perfect visual counterpart to the islanda (TM)s emerging dancehall scene.


This amazing book fills in pages that have long been missing from the official history of Jamaica's popular culture. The artful, comic insights revealed in Wilfred Limonious’ drawings and designs are not only an overlooked contribution to Jamaica’s musical heritage, they are clues to the deepest layers of the island’s rebel identity.


— Professor Paul Gilroy, King's College London
