2006 Softcover Good Auf der Suche nach der Seele Afrikas haben die Autoren den gesamten Kontinent bereist, die W?sten, St?dte und D?rfer, den Dschungel und die Nationalparks, ... Berge, Inseln und Seen, immer mit dem Ziel vor Augen, die Wohn-und Lebensumst?nde zu beschreiben und illustrieren, Umst?nde, die sich eigentlich jeder Beschreibung entziehen. Das Ergebnis dieser Suche hinterl?sst den Leser und Betrachter dieses Buches sprachlos ob der Vielfalt von Eindr?cken. Wir erleben grossartige moderne H?user eingebettet in Lehmh?tten-Siedlungen, trendige K?nstlerstudios, elegante Lodges, minimalistische H?user, kunstvoll gestaltete traditionelle Behausungen, Townships mit all ihrer Tristesse und noch viel mehr.

Plunge into Africa: South and West We've searched far and wide, through Africa's deserts and jungles, cities and wildlife reserves, islands and mountains, to uncover the continent's most inspirational dwellings; our goal was to find the kind of interiors that defy description, and we think the results will definitely leave you speechless.
