Join us and celebrate Bob Marley on Feb 6, his birthday!
In honor of Bob Marley’s seventy-fifth birthday, this glorious oversize book collects more than 150 photographs that celebrate the life and influence of the forefather of reggae and one of the greatest musical and sociopolitical icons of twentieth-century pop culture.
Ziggy Marley is an eight-time Grammy winner, Emmy winner, author, philanthropist, and reggae icon. He has released thirteen albums to much critical acclaim. His immersion in music came early at the age of ten, when he sat in on recording sessions with his father, and he has now realized his father’s lifelong dream of owning his master recordings and publishing intellectual property.
Malcolm Gladwell is the author of six New York Times bestsellers–The Tipping Point, Blink, Outliers, What the Dog Saw, David and Goliath and Talking to Strangers. He is also the co-founder of Pushkin Industries, an audio content company that produces the podcasts Revisionist History, which reconsiders things both overlooked and misunderstood, and Broken Record, where he, Rick Rubin, and Bruce Headlam interview musicians across a wide range of genres. Gladwell has been included in the TIME 100 Most Influential People list and touted as one of Foreign Policy‘s Top Global Thinkers.
Drawing exclusively on photos in the Marley family archives, the book mixes the iconic and the intimate, bringing together striking images of Marley as a performer onstage with unseen glimpses into his creative process in and out of the studio and his family life in Jamaica. Making the most of its oversize pages, the book is designed as a monument to his influence.
Focusing on the last decade of his life–the period of his greatest worldwide fame–and with excerpts from unpublished interviews and prophetic quotes alongside the images, this is a definitive portrait of one of the great artists of the twentieth century made by those who knew him best.
