No stylish bookshelf is complete without a skinny copy of Pop'Africana , a magazine with just two print editions aiming to re-educate the globe on the aesthetics of Africa. Pop'Africana's second issue addresses everything from the diaspora in Harlem (via an interview on cuisine with chef Marcus Samuelsson), modern African fiction (with 2010 Caine Prize-winning author Olufemi Terry), and the thriving design scene from Lagos to Cape Town. Along with a team of creatives, the magazine is produced by editor-in-chief and all around cool girl Oroma Elewa, whose grew up in Nigeria and works as a stylist/editor/photographer, making her the perfect candidate to carry out the magazine's claim of "re-introducing, re-defining, and re-inspiring all aspects of the arte Africano." Above: Year 1, Issue 2 of Pop'Africana can be found in store for $25 at Maryam Nassir Zadeh, but the magazine is shifting to an online format, which you can find soon at Pop'Africana .   Above: A review of Taschen's Inside Africa. Above: Stay tuned for Elewa's next project, mysteriously titled, " Oroma's Therapy ."
