IKE'S BOOK SALE (article first published : 2005-04-14)

In celebration of Ike's birthday, Ike's Books and Collectables will be having a massive sale (up to 50% off selected books) from April 28 to 30.

Joseph David (Ike) Mayet opened the doors of "Ike's Bookshop" in Chapel Street, Durban, on the 8th day of the 8th month, 1988. In so doing, he became the first South African "Africana and antiquarian" book-dealer of colour. The new South Africa was yet to be born, but the struggles that would make it a reality were to be found all around Durban, as they were in many other parts of South Africa.

The new venue was officially opened at its current address on January 18, 2001, by the acclaimed South African author Professor J M Coetzee, who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2003.

To come into Ike's is to enter a unique, "world-between-worlds", where the past, in all its humours, is still vibrant and accessible, and where the future is being shaped through the interaction and understanding that fuels the flame of hope for the new Millennium. Just as Ike Mayet's life and work represented shared paradigms and perceptions, so his legacy charts an exciting journey into the world to come.
