Following on the huge success of Down South: Homes and Interiors in South Africa (Jonathan Ball 2004), writer Paul Duncan and world-acclaimed photographer Fritz von der Schulenburg have again teamed up to produce a second book, Down South 2: More Homes and Interiors from around South Africa, again bringing together a diverse and fascinating selection of South African homes all around the country, from high-flyer city homes on the Highveld to enviable Plettenberg Bay beach houses and Cape Dutch homesteads in Cape Town and the Winelands. This is a sumptuously illustrated book featuring many homes never seen before in print: celebrated historical homes include Groote Schuur, Stellenberg and Morgenster; there are modern architectural classics from Johann Slee and Andrew Makin; top game lodges, including the newly opened Samara in the Great Karoo and the Waters at Royal Malewane in the bushveld, world-class decorating from Graham Viney, Boyd Ferguson and Tessa Proudfoot.
