Overview

The new South Africa is attracting the interest of graphic artists and clothing designers. A world-class photographer teams with a famous travel writer to produce page after page of displays sure to inspire anyone who works in any artistic medium. People, places, and possessions rarely seen before are presented in a breathtaking range of scenes. You peer at new Mediterranean influences in Cape Town, then tour the homes and glimpse the fashions of artists living in the dusty backroads of Zululand or the Lowfeld Safariland. Step into a stable surrounded by fields of cacti, a fisherman's cottage, a hunting lodge, or a wine estate. These unexpected vistas can inspire you to look afresh at your own cultural heritage for creative designs. 10 X 10. All in Color
