LIFE IS A VIBRATION

CLARKS IN JAMAICA


Out now through One Love Books, Clarks In Jamaica explains how shoes made by a Quaker firm from Somerset became the baddest footwear in Jamaica.

Referenced in reggae and dancehall since the brand’s adaption by Rastas and rudeboys in the 1960s, the book focuses on the artists who’ve worn and sung about Clarks over the years, through current and historic photography, interviews and unseen archive material.

The work of Al Fingers, the London-based writer and graphic designer who is one of the forces behind the excellent ShimmyShimmy blog, and photographer Mark Read, Clarks In Jamaica is available now.
