The African Book of Happiness, JOSEPH PETER

Last week ROAR AFRICA hosted a cocktail party at the home of Henry Buhl. This was a celebration of our 5th anniversary and the upcoming FIFA World Cup which is being hosted South Africa. In this vein we honored our friend and artist Joseph Peter. With his partners Coca-Cola and FIFA, Joey traveled 53 countries in 75 days with the FIFA trophy and produced an amazing work of art; The African Book of Happiness. What a wonderful project to share the inherent optimism of the African people instead of what we see on the news every day.
Many people wanted further information on Joey's book so he has kindly written up some more detailed information that I have attached. (Click each page below to enlarge).
It was a great honor to celebrate his incredible work and we look forward to the many new editions that will follow as Joey covers the globe.
