afrosport - the book
We are excited to announce that our next book AFROSPORT is now available for pre-order.
This is a limited edition first run of 2,000 copies. Each will be individually numbered.
Our first book AFROSURF has sold more than 17,000 copies globally, has been critically acclaimed and influenced global surf culture.
The aim of AFROSPORT is to shine a fresh light on Africa's history and future global influence through the intersecting lenses of sport, photography, design, and culture.
If you are interested in Africa, Sport, Design, Culture, Photography, Graphics and opening up your brain with exceptional writing and story-telling then you might want a copy.
Like AFROSURF, it has been created by renowned creative director Peet Pienaar. It contains the work of some incredible contributors - 25 writers, 30 photographers - and features 32 sports, 130 photos and more than 100 all original new graphics. All pulled together by a team working across the continent and beyond.
With a foiled hard cover, it is 320 pages and weighs 1.7kg.
There are only 2,000 copies of this first edition and more than 500 have already gone to the great folks that backed the creation of this book on Kickstarter. You can own a copy of this limited first run. Or perhaps gift someone, your favourite library or school a copy.
Profits from the sale of this book, like that of AFROSURF, will go to African youth surf therapy organisations Waves For Change and Surfers Not Street Children.
