COW CURRENCY Campaign by Rural School of Economics

Bazo wrote an autobiographical story about the Hamar people and Gele made drawings of his pastoral childhood memories. Lumbung Press at documenta fifteen was happy to print the unique material!

The book is also a complicated story of a conflict between strict customs and demands for change.
