Jamaican Dancehall Signs Becomes A Coffee Table Must Have

Jamaican film-maker Maxine Walters can be frequently found scaling trees, poles, walls and fences for her love of  Dancehall Signs to add new work to her extensive collection, that she has built for over 12 years. Maxine has now put her collection into an coffee table book called Jamaican Dancehall Signs which features a foreword from my homie Jesse Serwer, a journalist who has covered all things Caribbean for publications including The Washington Post, Complex Magazine, Rolling Stone, and The Village Voice.

This limited edition, softcover book marks the inaugural publishing venture by Miss Lily’s Variety, the retail arm and gallery / cultural space of popular New York City Jamaican restaurant, Miss Lily’s.
