Zapiro:The Mandela Files

This first part of Zapiro's presentation at the Design Indaba Expo 2009, shows him talking about The Mandela Files. Released in 2008, the book comically illustrates Madiba's remarkable journey in sports, reconciliation and politics over a quarter of a century, as icon of the new South Africa from its birth in 1994 with his presidency. Arguably South Africa's most celebrated cartoonist, Jonathan Shapiro, better known as Zapiro, has published 11 cartoon collections, held solo exhibitions in New York, London and Frankfurt, and participated in international group shows. This renowned Cape Town-born political cartoonist and satirist has won numerous international journalism, literary and cartoonist awards and made an Honorary Doctor of Literature by the University of the Transkei.
