‘Lustrous’ is the only word to describe the eleven stories illustrated by six artists and told by the one and only Gcina Mhlophe. In case you haven’t met her in person – and in action – I can share with you that she lives her stories, she projects and animates them. The storytelling has rhythm and the words have the music of Africa. It is a world of magic – and yet it is a world full of real Africa. What better way to build a bridge between reality and fantasy?
