About the book
The Reggae Nation: The Global Legacy of Bob Marley & The Wailers is the first conscious and comprehensive attempt to explore and understand the global achievements, presence, and legacy of Bob Marley and the Wailers and their contributions to the ‘Reggae Nation’: the worldwide reggae community.
As a comprehensive global history of reggae and a reggae travelogue rolled into one, The Reggae Nation takes readers on an extraordinary and unique journey through time and space. There is no other book like this unique and professionally produced work about the King of Reggae and what he has meant and continues to mean to people all over the world.
From the bottom of the Grand Canyon to the frozen heights of the Himalayas in Nepal, and numerous places in between on all continents, The Reggae Nation takes readers to the roots and along the routes of reggae and Rastafari and the pioneering work of Bob Marley and the Wailers.
A striking, one of a kind 420 page publication, The Reggae Nation is beautifully, colourfully , and richly designed and illustrated by graphic artist Maria Papaefstathiou , co founder of the International Reggae Poster Contest.
The book features nearly 300 illustrations and photos, of which many by renowned reggae and pop music photographers from around the world. With a foreword by Roger Steffens, noted reggae archivist and expert and author of So Much Things to Say: The Oral History of Bob Marley.
The Reggae Nation is available as a limited, hardcover edition on Kickstarter from February 24 until March 17. Early birds who support the book will be thanked in the book.
