Reviews

  • One Love Books  - Sound System CultureOne Love Books Sound System Culture

    A really excellent book from Al Fingers 'One Love Books' who are fast gaining a reputation for being the premier label for all things related to Jamaican Culture. Can't recommend this highly enough. Lavish thoughtful and done with real panache.
    Huddersfield a town in the North of England was always known as a hotbed for Reggae Music. This book explains why and how. Tasty.

  • One Love Books  - Clarks in JamaicaOne Love Books Clarks in Jamaica

    The First book from One Love books that came out a while a go. If you missed it then we would recommend it. Nominally a book about shoes!!! But actually lifts gives you an insight into the rich cultural heritage of an iconic English Shoe brand and how it permeated all aspects of Jamaican life. Tempted to mention the 'Sole' of Jamaica but we wont.
