Let’s be honest, we ALL judge books by their covers! The cover of a book can either dissuade or persuade anyone into reading it. African book covers in particular are all very unique. Here are 20 of some of my favorite African book covers. The cool art work of these covers either pushed me to purchase the books, or are still encouraging me to purchase them in the near future. This is showcase 1 of my Book Covers Series :).
This post is inspired by Bookshy, the creator of africanbookcovers.tumblr.com and bookshybooks.blogspot.co.uk. Several diverse African book covers are beautifully showcased and celebrated on her blogs. They are a lovely ode to African literature!
