Tasty Reggae Book Signing & Launch Party

  • Printed Matter 231 11th Avenue New York, NY, 10001 (map)

Please join us at Printed Matter for the release and signing of Kenya Hanley's first book, Tasty Reggae. The book is published by All-You-Can-Eat Press.

For the past decade, Hanley has devoted countless hours to meticulously drawing his two great loves: food and reggae musicians. Dripping sweets, junk food, and traditional West Indian meals fill the page. Desmond Dekker, Bunny Wailer, Peter Tosh, and Shabba Ranks float in and out. Hanley organizes his subjects into rows or piles, often color-coded and labeled. His work pays hommage to the food he grew up eating, the sweets he tries to stay away from, and the music he so lovingly listens to.

Tasty Reggae surveys Hanley's vast body of work, covering the savory, the sweet and, of course, the Rasta. This books offers a glimpse into Hanley's world — one that is undeniably tasty and cool.
