Magic Has No Borders

23 May, 2023

The cover has a border of yellow around the edges with a vine and small red flowers. The title is centered and behind the title, there is a bright blue background and many images from the different stories such as a hand sprinkling spices into a coooking pot, a woman carrying a bloody sword, a tiger roaring, a hand holding marionettes, a snake baring its fangs wrapped around a branch high up, and more. Magic Has No Borders edited by Sona Charaipotra and Samira Ahmed
