First published in 1972, SkyWritings, Air Jamaica's inflight magazine, was guided by two principles-that it would be reflective of a myriad of Jamaican experiences, and that there are many ways to tell a story. Armed with this philosophy, SkyWritings was destined to be much more than just another inflight magazine, a fact that certainly paved the way for its ability to publish the very first anthology by an inflight magazine.
Presented in 11 sections, A Tapestry of Jamaica covers music, food, places, fashion, roots, people, art, sport, history, and memories. There is an entire section devoted to the poems and prose of Miss Lou, Louise Bennett-Coverley poet, author, folklorist and national icon.
The new book is a nostalgic retreat for those who'll remember everything from the humour of the island's first Prime Minister, Sir Alexander Bustamante, and Kingston in the early seventies, to Perry Henzell's film classic The Harder They Come and grater cakes, gizzadas and coconut drops-while also exposing the intricacies of life in Jamaica to a new generation of readers.
