Quivertree’s mission – to approach subjects with integrity and a positive outlook – is tangible in both the range and content of its books, which include many international and local award winners. All, without exception, celebrate the South African context that provides so much inspiration to its founders, photographer Craig Fraser and graphic designer Libby Doyle.
Since its inception in 2001, Quivertree has specialised in exquisite publications that centre on individuality in a South African milieu, particularly in the fields of food and decor. As well as publishing books, Quivertree produces irresistible postcards showcasing the best of Craig Fraser’s striking images and, owing to the ever-increasing demand for his work, has recently launched an image bank.
Previous successes include: Shack Chic, a groundbreaking exploration of the design, style and culture to be found in South African shack-lands. This title was selected to be a major exhibition at the UN Habitats summit in Kenya, has sold co-edition rights to Thames and Hudson, and has been translated into Dutch by Novib; Feast by Franck Dangereux, winner of Best Chef Cookbook at the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards 2004; and Lazy Days: Contemporary Country-Style Cooking by Phillippa Cheifitz, winner of the Gourmand World Cookbook’s Best Local Cookbook category in 2006. In a remarkable feat, Quivertree has won an award for every single cookbook it has published! Quivertree’s glorious decor titles include Mud Chic; Home: Cape Town; South: South African Style in Decor; The New Safari: Design, Decor, Detail; Africanismo, and the soon to be published Hot Afro, showcasing the best local design and décor has to offer.Next →
