Wilfred Limonious x Supreme x One Love Books

One Love Books are proud to announce a new collaboration with Supreme and the Limonious Estate. This exiting collab will include a publication and t-shirts showcasing some of Limonious’ original iconic illustrations plastered on four graphic tees fused with another new four Summer t-shirts.

For those of you who don’t know of Wilfred Limonious, he was a prolific Jamaican illustrator and designer who is now recognised as the father of ‘dancehall art’. The 1970’s were the years in which he began his professional career, illustrating comics for The Star newspaper before going on to work for the island’s national literacy program, JAMAL (Jamaican Movement for the Advancement of Literacy) as illustrator of their publications. Some of his most iconic work includes pieces created for the Jamaican music industry during the 1980s and ’90s, when he designed hundreds of album jackets and record label logos for the likes of Power House, Studio One, Techniques, Jammy’s, Midnight Rock, Scar Face Music, Dennis Star International, Ujama, Volcano, Taxi and numerous other labels.

This clothing line will be available in-store and online from the 29 June 2017. The book In Fine Style: The Dancehall Art of Wilfred Limonious, which documents Limonious’ life and work, will also be available in-store for a limited time.
