Following the successful launch of our first book, “101 Country churches of South Africa,” my co-author Darryl David and I were very keen to extend our offering to the book-reading public, and this resulted in the production of our second book, “A Platteland Pilgrimage: 102 Country churches of South Africa.”
Our new book contains considerably more detail than the first one – we have included more church interiors, showing features such as organs, pulpits, galleries and stained glass windows, we have described more history, we have explored the relationship of the church vis-a-vis the town or village where it is situated, and have also included more than one photo per church where we could. There is a four-page section featuring South Africa’s best-known church architects, and an easy-to-read double-page map, showing where each town is placed.
We launched our book at the Boekbedonnerd Book Festival held at Richmond, Karoo, to critical acclaim, and, in the space of six weeks, have sold some 125 copies. There are some 350 copies in our stock at present.
The book contains 132 pages, all in full-colour, A 4, soft cover. Price is R 250 + R 25 postage. You can obtain the book by contacting me at Philippe.firstname.lastname@example.org or 083 307 4041. It is also available through Kalahari.com
For less than the price of half a tank of petrol, we guarantee that our product will give you hours of reading pleasure!
