If you're interested, I can recommend all of those books, but especially Ceremony by Leslie Marmon Silko, Thrall by Natasha Trethewey if you're into poetry and art history (it's still pretty accessible if you're not!), and Season of Migration to the North by Tayeb Salih (which was a happy surprise when I picked it up on a whim from the library last year).
(With the potential to be a bit more in depth than on Instagram, though.)
I'm working on sorting out these butterflies for my next project(s). They're meant to be made into little 3D greeting cards and prints, with little bendable wings, but I've yet to finalize the production end of it. They'll be cute when I do! In the meantime, the prototypes get to hang out on my wall, next to my bookshelves.
