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.]
