Look at that Cover! Queer Africa 2

by - 22:59



In 2015, MaThoko's Books - an imprint that publishes queer literature in Africa - had a call for submissions for the follow-up on its first anthology, the Lambda Literary award winning Queer Africa: New and Collected Fiction. Well, here's the cover for Queer Africa 2, and isn't it gorgeous!!!! This is one of those less words, and more images post ... purely because my words won't do it any justice. 




The cover was designed by Danielle Clough - photographer-designer-vj-embroider - who explained her process for creating the cover, and while she mentions that 'its difficult to answer' her design process as 'every piece varies from materials purpose', she writes about the role of portraits and photography for the cover design


Keeping in line with the original I have been shooting and embroidering portraits. So for this project, photography has been a strong tool in the process. 
In an article on Collosal, which focuses on Clough's work it was mentioned that the editors of Queer Africa 2, Makhosazana Xaba and Karen Martin,


... were drawn to Clough's work for the publication because of the conceptual linkage of her layered yarn to the personal narratives told in the book, which Zaba explained 'adds meaning and speaks to the zigzagging nature of our lives'.

I love the textures, the vibrant colours and how detailed the faces are. Here's the full piece.

Love it!!! Definitely check out Danielle Clough's website and her Instagram for the rest of her amazing work. If I'm not mistaken, Queer Africa 2 was meant to be published earlier this year (but would need to be double check).

  3. BITCOIN, BINARY OPTION: Please everyone should be careful and stop being fooled by all these brokers and account managers, they scammed me over $200,000 of my investment capital, they kept on requesting for extra funds before a withdrawal request can be accepted and processed, in the end, I lost all my money. All efforts to reach out to their customer support desk had declined, I found it very hard to move on. God so kind I followed a broadcast that teaches on how scammed victims can recover their fund, I contacted the email provided for consultation, I got feedback after some hours and I was asked to provide all legal details concerning my investment, I did exactly what they instructed me to do without delay, to my greatest surprise I was able to recover my money back including my profit which my capital generated. I said I will not hold this to myself but share it to the public so that all scammed victims can get their funds back, ::::::: if you have problems on any stuffed like a bank, company, examinations, database, Social media hacks, Email hacks, Phone hacks, Bitcoin hacks, increased Credit score boost to 800, School result upgrading, Binary option funds recovery Instagram, Bitcoin Mining, WhatsApp, Twitter, Monitor your colleague, access your spouse social media, and a lot more:you can contact him on : wizardwilsonsoftware (@) Yahoo.com his whatsapp number (+1) 807,700,3319. )
