Cape Town is a place of haunting natural beauty and captivating urban charm on Africa’s southernmost peninsula. Here, under the spellbinding influence of Table Mountain, jagged cliffs tumble steeply into the sea; mountain faces tower above unspoilt beaches; an indigenous floral kingdom garlands the mountains and valleys; and vineyards embrace the city in a patchwork of vivid colours. Gerald Hoberman presents an insightful portrait of the city’s history, its architectural heritage and its vibrant, creative people. Informative text accompanying the photographs blends historical detail with current knowledge. Cape Town is an inspiring book, a celebration of diversity. But above all else, it is a rich offering to all who share a profound love for South Africa’s Mother City.
