Bob Marley : Spirit Dancer
by Bruce W. Talamon (Photographer), Roger Steffens (Designer)
Book Description:
A photographic and textual meditation on the life of a legend, reissued in special CD-size format. 
Twenty years after Bob Marley's untimely death he remains a powerful worldwide presence. His music is at the top of the reggae charts, while his memory is indelibly etched in the minds of millions of his followers. 

In the last two years of his life Marley underwent a dramatic change, becoming a gentler and more philosophical version of himself. He also met photographer Bruce Talamon, to whom he granted unprecedented access, both on the stage and off. The result is this remarkable visual record, which, paired with Roger Steffens's sensitive text tracing Marley's life from his youth in Jamaica to worldwide acceptance, captures (in the words of the late Timothy White's introduction) "the private warmth, social equanimity, zealous determination...and personal magnetism" of Bob Marley. 82 b/w photographs.

One Love: Life with Bob Marley and the Wailers
One Love: Life with Bob Marley and the Wailers
by Lee Jaffe, Roger Steffens, Geoff Gans
Book Description:
An intimate portrait of two years on the eve of fame by a friend and collaborator of the Wailers. 

In 1973 young artist and filmmaker Lee Jaffe met Bob Marley in New York City and within hours cemented a friendship that would see Jaffe becoming a "Wailer" right down (or up) to his dreadlocks. 

While Marley was well known in Jamaica, he was little known in the rest of the world. Jaffe witnessed Marley's life and increasing fame during those years. He helped organize Marley's first American tour and played reggae with the Wailers throughout Jamaica. He learned Rastafarian ways. And he took wonderful, candid photographs of the many colorful characters who moved through Bob's world. This book, with the photographs and Jaffe's account of those exciting years, is a lens through which we have an intimate view of the young Marley. Jaffe's recollections of life with Marley are little diminished by time. Indeed, they are as colorful as the photographs, and as revealing. 120 four-color photographs.
