British-Protected Child

NOVEMBER 15, 2010

This is a new cover the series of books by Chinua Achebe I've been working on.  I did the hand lettering as well, some of the additional sketches are below. 
"Chinua Achebe's characteristically eloquent and nuanced voice is everywhere present in these seventeen beautifully written pieces.  From a vivid portrait of growing up in colonial Nigeria to considerations on the African-American diaspora, from a glimpse into his extraordinary family life and his thoughts on the potent symbolism of President Obama's election—this charmingly personal, intellectually disciplined, and steadfastly wise collection is an indispensable addition to the remarkable Achebe oeuvre."
