My favourite cover of the year is South African illustrator and designer Joey Hi-Fi's design for Nnedi Okorafor's Lagoon. I first gushed about it back in 2013 - going on about how absolutely gorgeous it was with images of Lagos above and the sea life and activity below. I loved everything about it and the cover still speaks to me on so many levels - it gives me chills, but it also excites me.
Well, here are 21 more of my favourite African book covers of 2014 - and there is no Acacia tree in sight.
