One Love Books is proud to present In Fine Style: The Dancehall Art of Wilfred Limonious, the first solo retrospective of Jamaican illustrator Wilfred Limonious (1949–99). Bringing together a diverse selection of works produced from the early 1970s to the mid-1990s.

As one of Jamaica’s most prolific illustrators and designers, Wilfred Limonious started his career producing comic strips for the Jamaican daily newspaper, The Star. For a number of years Limonious worked as in-house illustrator for Jamaica’s national literacy programme, before making a name for himself in the Jamaican music industry, illustrating hundreds of LP jackets.

Despite being widely recognised in reggae and dancehall circles, Limonious’ illustrations are relatively unknown in the wider art world. His artwork will be displayed in the Glass Room for 6 weeks.
