Africas art and craft store sells more than 10,000 books worth more than $10.6 million in an online auction.
The Africast Art and Craft Store, which is based in South Africa, opened in 2014 and has since become the biggest online art and crafts store in Africa, according to a statement from the Africacraft Store website.
The auction includes more than 1,000 rare books, books by artists and writers, ceramics, woodworking, ceramen and pottery.
“I am so happy to be able to share the proceeds of this sale with all the artists and authors who have helped us to make Africamart what it is today,” said the store’s founder and founder of AfricafashionStore, Dr. Luba Tshibekwa.
“The Afrikaans people have always supported their artists and they are the reason Africa is the world’s most diverse and artistic country.”
The AfriComShop auction also includes a book titled “Kamutu Tshiba,” by the South African poet and writer Radek Makhasho, which has been a bestseller in South African libraries.
The book was written in 1871, in the midst of the famine in which Makhasa died.
The auction includes books by many South African writers including writers from KwaZulu-Natal, Durban, Cape Town, Pretoria, Cape, Cape Elizabeth and Durban.
In the past few years, the AfriCraftStore has also sold books by the acclaimed author Radeke van der Klaauw, who wrote about the plight of children during the apartheid era.
The shop is currently auctioning off books about South Africa’s African National Congress and Afrikaner history, including a book on the group by renowned historian and historian John Kwa.
