Why it’s special…
The Alagbẹdẹ notebook by Minku Atelier pays homage to Nigerian cultural history. Designer Kunmi Otitoju draws inspiration from eighteen copper-alloy busts dating back to 1300 C.E. that were unearthed in Ife, a West African kingdom. The sculptures, representing the Ooni (ruler) of Ife, featured scarification (lines) and holes for attaching hair and moustache and these markings have been reproduced as lines and dots on the covers of the notebooks.
