Editorial Reviews

Review

“The chief impression made by this colorful compilation is that of variety. This is hardly surprising from a continent of 54 countries with multiple languages and climates. . . . This is much more than ‘safari chic.’” (Interior Design)

“Challenges perceptions of African creativity by focusing on design and innovation on the continent. . . . Conventionally, African craftspeople have remained anonymous to international audience members; Matsinde’s book joins others who have been working to ameliorate this situation.” (Africa is a Country)

“Gives an unprecedented insight into Africa’s world of arts. This book is a must read for everyone interested in modern, international design.” (The Washington Book Review)

About the Author
