Memory Against Forgetting
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 FraserHere 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 SOUTH AFRICAFrom 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.
