Oscar Wilson has been working with Canongate Books on the cover art for the
postumous memoir of Gil Scott Heron entitled The Last Holiday. Oscar worked
closely with the team at Canongate to create this iconic image of Gil made
from selected poems and lyrics.
Gil Scott-Heron's Publisher and friend Jamie Byng said of the work: "I think
Oscar has created an iconic image of Gil and one that will become widely
known and it makes the whole book come together beautifully. Words were so
important in Gil's life and he loved playing with them so having this image
of him in which he is literally made of words seems perfectly apt especially
for a memoir which is made up of his words."
