Library Project for Jamaica Flux mirrors the hip-hop sports footwear and liquor banners and billboards that big corporations often designate for black neighborhoods. Instead of Timberland footwear or Tanqueray and Hennessy, the posters promote the local library and the virtues of reading. The copies of the poster that have been produced for Jamaica Flux are displayed in public places such as phone booths.
