Art book with over 100 beautifully reproduced color plates of paintings and sculptures by well-known Jamaican artist Susan Alexander. The subject matter is mostly Jamaican -- dance, religion, music, landscape, marketplaces, people -- but occasionally includes images from the broader Caribbean and Central America. Each plate is accompanied by a literary excerpt -- poem, folk song, epigram -- that relates to the work's theme. The forewords by cultural icon Rex Nettleford and art curator David Boxer place Alexander's work in the increasingly vibrant context of Jamaican art.
