A beautiful book on a beautiful place
Kirstenbosch is a name that resonates around the world as the home of uniquely rich flora in a setting of unsurpassed beauty. In 2013 Kirstenbosch celebrates its 100th anniversary: this centenary publication tells the story of its establishment, its setbacks and triumphs, its benefactors and heroes.
Just like the botanical garden is responsible for many treasured memories, so Kirstenbosch: the most beautiful garden in Africa will be a volume to treasure. It outlines the garden’s scientific eminence – as the repository of our prized flora – and details the many attractions that make it a favourite destination for Capetonians and visitors alike.
With a finely crafted text by acclaimed ecologist Brian Huntley, and lavishly illustrated with photographs and artworks that tell the history and reflect the beauty of the garden, this will be a sought-after volume – a quality memento for visitors to Kirstenbosch and a keepsake for the many thousands of locals who flock there annually. Beautifully presented, this book will be a tasteful, all occasions gift, and one to cherish.
