The core of the country is infiltrated with such a rich history intertwined with a variety of adapted cultures that birthed a unique gastronomic culture, community of humble people, and the most dynamic country from east to west. Recently I started this new tradition, wherever I visit in the world, both near and far, I will pick up a cookbook to remind myself of the time spent in that particular place. And so when I was on the hunt for the perfect Cape Malay-inspired cookbook, I came across Select Books.
A cozy, little place with rare and out-of-print africana books…

in the midst of it all

And just like the rich history of the country it inhabits, Select Books has some historical treasures that are a must see!
From vintage maps to rugby memorabilia, to special photos of political events.
From books on art, geography, cooking, photography, the selection follows the trend of
sharing the true essence of the Africana culture and community.
