Modjaji postcards

All the Modjaji book covers are fabulous and I decided to make them available as postcards, partly as a kind of Promo material that we can use at Book Fairs and other events and partly as another small cash flow booster. Us Indie publishers are always having to think outside the box to keep the old cash flow flowing.

Cover artists include the likes of Hannah Morris, Jesse Breytenbach, Colleen Crawford Cousins, Zanele Muholi, Kathleen Glenday, Natascha Mostert, Jacqui Stecher, Diane Swartzberg and Lies Hoogendoorn.

So here is a special offer for Book SA readers, check out the Modjaji Book Catalogue to remind yourself of all the gorgeous covers. I’ve uploaded some samples on Scribd. Choose a pack of 20 which is R100, you will get the postcards supplied with postage and packaging included. The packs will be mixed cards of covers or you can choose 2 or 4 covers that you like more than others. More complicated combinations won’t be possible. For now the cards will only be sold directly from Modjaji.

Modjaji authors and contributors to collections and Modjaji matrons can get the cards for R4 each, so R100 will get 25 cards. If you are keen email me at with your postal address. You will be doing a small good thing if you buy the cards.
