The Assassination of Shaka by Cecil Skotnes and Stephen Gray (SIGNED), ex-Library book

Gallery Bon Bon

Regular price R 2,500.00

The story of Shaka's rise and fall has been told before, but here an artist and a poetcombine to rework the Shaka drama in a rare and stunning medium. Cecil Skotnes's 43 woodblock prints with Stephen Gray's captions are an extraordinarily vital response to the Shaka phenomenon, and this is the book they have made together. The Assassination of Shaka, complete with working notes on the genesis of the project, is a powerful meshing of image and word that leads into the heart of an African experience."
