He’s alive! #Ebola survivor Sanfa, 14, caught the the virus while at school in Sierra Leone, a two hour walk from his home village. When news came back from several health officials that he had died, a traditional funeral ceremony was organised, mourners shared a meal and food was set aside to feed his spirit on its journey to the next life. But rumours began to reach the community that he was alive - and when Sanfa returned, the entire village turned out to welcome him.

This series of experimental books was based off of R&B artist, Frank Ocean and his album, Channel Orange. From sound bytes, sex, drugs, true love, and raw confessions, each book portrays the nature of its respective track. The package was inspired by the nostalgic vibe of Channel Orange as an album with Ocean’s use of old school stereo sounds laced within his tracks.
