A fantastic Journal of the buzzing city of Lagos; the good, the bad, the ugly and the beautiful. An absolute great addition to your coffee table books and the perfect gift for one who is fascinated by people, travel and culture.
Taking its meaning from the Yoruba word for “walk” and “journey”, ìrìn journal explores African culture through travel, people and community by focusing on a different African city for each issue. Covering stories from food to fashion, history, art, design, film and more. The concept is simple: to inform and educate our readers, by documenting these diverse cultures and therefore inspiring them to explore.
