It is a common notion that Africa has, and indeed ought to have, learned much from the west. This is not wrong; all cultures rightly learn from each other. But less is said of what there is to learn from Africa: from her stories, myths, music, proverbs, insights – and more. Here an acclaimed African scholar steps into the gap by uncovering something of the great legacy of African thought in practice in ways that will astonish many. Written with verve and authority and directed above all to students and sixth formers, this book will also delight and often surprise those who know something of Africa as well as those hitherto ignorant.

The book is an intimate view into how Rob’s design for a young, start-up company became a defining moment in the home computer revolution. Telling the authentic tale of how the globally loved icon came to be, Rob offers insight and inspiration to young people considering the field of graphic design – and to the young at heart who share his love of memorable graphics.
