Dear Nigeria-based Adichie fans, this news is for you! Your favorite Adichie books are being reissued in iconic Ankara (wax-print) designs.

The award winning author’s Nigerian new publisher Narrative Landscape Press is issuing a collector’s edition of her body of work, beginning with Purple Hibiscus and continuing through Half of a Yellow Sun and Americanah, and her non-fiction books, We Should All Be Feminists and Dear Ijeawele.

Announcement of the new editions was made on February 16th and reveals that the new cover art was done in collaboration with the wax-print fabric giant VLISCO.

Adichie’s fans would recall that the author’s books underwent an Ankara-print make-over August of 2017. The cover design, at the time, was done by high-profile graphic artist Jo Walker. [Read here if you missed it.]

The present collection is different in the sense that it features Ankara print designs that hold a special place in Nigeria’s textile culture. These designs are not only iconic but also inspire feelings of home, of nostalgia, and elegance.

Start getting your money ready for the April release. You don’t want to pass up on this rare chance to adorn your library with dazzling book ornaments!

See all the stunning covers!
