Sankofa can mean both the word in the Akan language of the Akan people which translates to Portuguese as "come back and get it" (san - back, return; and catch) or the Adinkras Axantis symbols of a bird with its head turned back, taking an egg from its back as a stylized heart shape. It is often associated with the proverb: "If wo were fi na wosankofa a yenkyi" which in free translation would be "It's not wrong to go back for what you forgot”. And the proposal is precisely this: to leave books halfway so they can be found by new readers.

For Sankofa, a visual identity was developed, poster and book cover with QR code technology for the purpose of viewing the course of the books, from the start point in Rio de Janeiro to other cities and, perhaps, leaving the country.
