Dear Backers,

We hope this finds you well! Details are being finalized now for the shipment of books heading to New York, which we will then sign and send out to you. More on that soon! In the meantime, we wanted to quickly update you on some other exciting developments:

–The night before the World Press Photo Festival and awards ceremony in Amsterdam, our partners at WPP and PhotoQ bookstore are holding this Visions of Africa event, where Everyday Africa cofounder Peter DiCampo and book designer Teun van der Heijden will present the Everyday Africa book! We will discuss editorial choices and the bookmaking process, and a limited number of books will be available. The event is on Wednesday, April 19th at 8pm at Pakhuis de Zwijger in Amsterdam, and there are a number of other amazing speakers!

–We've recently been featured in Afrique in VisuZeit Online, The Economist, and Port!

The books are now available in Europe, in various bookstores and on Amazon – they will be available in the US soon, and yours will be sent your way!

Many thanks, as always, for all of your support! Very best,

Peter and Austin / Everyday Africa
