Afropea 3 “Telling Stories to the Sea

Sagmeister, Inc., New York, New York, 1996


The music is a compilation of Portuguese-influenced music from the African islands of Cape Verde and São Tome. We unified the wide range of different lyrics and artists with a hole that is die-cut through the booklet. My friend Tomi (who reads more Taoists than I do) suggests that the central theme of the cover is “nothingness.”
