Back in September 2014 I hinted at some news I was looking forward to sharing a few months into the future; well that time has now come and I am so thrilled to finally be able to introduce my forthcoming first book on modern African home decor and design entitled- Contemporary Design Africa
. Contemporary Design Africa will be published by Thames & Hudson
in May 2015 in the UK, and in early June in the US.

Inspired by the findings I share on Atelier Fifty-Five, Contemporary Design Africa presents 50 or so incredible designers and makers, some of whom I have featured on the blog, and others who may be new names to you; all in a bid to create a truly inspirational visual resource of African design that celebrates the contribution African designers, makers and artisans are making to global design, and the amazing things that are happening in design across the continent and in the diaspora.
“Packed with irresistibly stylish, original and covetable work that will be a delight to all fans of contemporary design”. – Thames & Hudson
