Gift Box — Africa: A Small Glimpse
A Champaca special gift box of books by women writers in Africa — a small glimpse of a large history.
This was a box we sent out in our Champaca Book Subscription. The Subscription is a curated box we send out across India in a certain theme, and in year one, it contained translations from across the world.
You can learn more, and sign up for the current theme, here.
