Stars Belong in Space

Project title: Stars Belong in Space

 by : Ellen Heydenrych (Design)

 Project link :https://issuu.com/ellenfrancesheydenrych/docs/naledi-final


The project takes the form of an English-medium South African children's book, and chronicles the life of Naledi, who is raised by her grandmother (Nkgono) on the outskirts of Johannesburg. Naledi has a fascination with stars and space, and dreams of becoming an astronaut. Despite having to overcome various obstacles, Naledi realises this dream.

The process of creating the book involved a series of interviews with Binwe Adebayo, Thingo Mthombeni and Mandisa Mpulo. The project is freely available to read on digital publishing platform, Issuu.
