Jean Doyle, A Portait
Jean Doyle, A Portait

Jean Doyle, A Portrait is a glorious tribute to one of South Africa’s quietest artists. This part-biography, part critique explores how Jean has formed, shaped, forged and polished her career. Frequently told through her private sculpture notes, it goes beneath the layers of bronze and clay to the inspirational heart of her work, tracing her artistic journey. It celebrates the freshness, simplicity, intelligence, unmistakable sense of humour and, strikingly, the modest humility with which Jean Doyle has emerged as one of the greatest story-telling South African artists of our time.

The first-ever anthology of Jean Doyle’s life and work, this is a rich and vivid exploration of this eminent South African artist’s achievements. It is deeply personal and reveals never-before-seen sculpture notes. This book is a visual feast of Doyle’s works, including useful thumbnail references in a practical, chronological appendix.

Memory Against Forgetting
Memory Against Forgetting
Memory Against Forgetting, by Ranjith Kally "He captured iconic scenes, such as his portrait Umkumbane, which has come to symbolise the shimmering jazz age of African townships in the 1950s. When Miriam Makeba returned to Maseru, Lesotho, for a concert for black South Africans at the height of apartheid, Kally too ventured to Lesotho and returned home with a remarkable image of an exiled singer poised between joy and heartbreak. And in a series of unflinching portraits, he documented with probity the horror of the forced removals in Natal. In short, the wider appreciation of his contribution to our struggle for dignity needs to remembered and fully embraced for current South Africans intent on honouring their past."

While photographing the book, Shack Chic, which focussed on the lifestyle and inspiration found in the shack-lands of Cape Town, the most frequent reply to my question, ‘Where is your home?’ was ‘Transkei’, I felt the need to explore ‘home’, to understand this attachment that the urban shack dwellers feel for their rural roots. – Craig Fraser
Here life is lived in tune with nature and in cognisance of community. It is here in every inch of a traditional rural dwelling that we find the ideological and decorative footprint of Xhosa culture. SIZE 280 X 280 MM • PAGES 192 • HARD COVER • ISBN 978-0-620-35392-9

Remarkable Heritage Houses of SA
Remarkable Heritage Houses of SA
REMARKABLE HERITAGE HOUSES OF SOUTH AFRICA
From a grand sand stone mansion rescued from dilapidation in the scrubby Free State veld, to a romantic Arts & Crafts style double-storey that presides over a halfacre of prime real estate in the high Berea suburb of Durban, Remarkable Heritage Houses of South Africa provides a privileged glimpse inside 20 of the country’s most distinguished, remarkable and treasured private residences. Predominantly constructed no later than the mid 1950s and chosen for the singular legacy each keeps alive, these are homes that blend architectural integrity with an uncanny sense of place. Some more ‘historic’ than others, they have been sensitively rescued or meticulously preserved, or simply kept current with custodianship that has at all times respected their unique pedigree. Strikingly captured by distinguished photographer, Craig Fraser, they cover the full gamut of locations, architectural genres and interior decorating styles, yet have all been skilfully adapted to meet the demands of modern living.   SIZE 235 x 275 HARD COVER, EXTENT 274 pgs. • ISBN 978-1-928209-62-1
