About This Item

(Cape Town, Struik, 1990). Folio; original cloth-backed paper over boards; laminated pictorial dustwrapper; small, light tape stains to pictorial endpapers; gift inscription on half-title; pp. 160; numerous full colour photographs. Near fine condition. "This magnificently illustrated work is unique among the many photographic books on South Africa, for it presents a daringly original collection of pictures that invite the reader to look afresh at the country's natural and man-made landscapes. The majority of the images were captured from the air and provide stunning views of the surface of the land - its shapes, colours, patterns and textures - including the various effects of man's activities on earth's delicate and sensitive skin. . . . In these pictures Herman Potgieter has renounced the obvious and produced images of supreme originality. To do justice to photography of this calibre, the greatest care has been taken with all aspects of the book's design, materials and production, resulting in a truly remarkable publication of the highest quality that will provide immense delight and endless fascination." Please note that this book is heavy, and postage will be charged accordingly. .
