If you’ve ever had the pleasure of owning a One Love book then chances are that you A) really love reggae and B) appreciate a unique publication that’s been made with equal amounts of skill and passion. For their next amazing project they’re making a book with Alex Bartsch that retraces reggae covers (from his collection) that were taken on the streets of London between 1967 -87 with more than 40 of these sleeves having been re-photographed back in the same locations they were originally taken. To help get this cracking project off the ground One Love have just launched a Kickstarter project which is a cause that we wholeheartedly recommend you all get involved with. Plus from a purely selfish perspective we really, really love books that are all about reggae, so for more information and to become a backer go here immediately.
