When Anne Wenkel asked us to design her book project Im Schatten des Baobab, we agreed immediately. Since then two full years have passed, in which we continued working on this heart project when time allowed. Now the book has been released.
During her trips to Burkina Faso, Anne wrote down the century-old fairy tales told by the local Griots and translated them from the original French into German. The first issue of the book was elaborately illustrated and autonomously produced in a small print run during her diploma project. With Jaja Verlag Anne eventually found a partner, who published the book with great commitment and care.
The new edition, which is from now on available, has been conceptualized and designed from scratch in close collaboration with the author.
