The Special Collections Book of the Week this week is:
South African Township Barbershops and Salons by Simon Weller.
In this book, Simon Weller presents vivid photographs of signage, shops, and their patrons alongside interviews with the proprietors, customers and sign makers. This honest and intimate portrayal of small businesses challenges preconceptions, gives voice to township residents, and reveals an undeniable aspect of South African culture.
This book is available at Special Collections, housed on level 5 of the Merensky 2 Library, and is part of our Africana (ZA) Collection.
The Special Collections unit of the Department of Library Services plays a stewardship role in the acquisition and preservation of the Library's rare and valuable information resources, making them accessible to students, staff and researchers, as well as safeguarding them for future generations.
