Reviews - What do customers think about South African Style (Icons)?
Pretty, but thin Jan 28, 2008
After visiting South Africa, I really wanted to find ways to incorporate some "African style" into my home without looking like a safari hut. The book is pretty, there are certainly some nice layouts, but I didn't really find what I was looking for. Plus, I bought the book by the same publisher, "Inside Africa South and West", and found a number of duplicate images. Africa is pretty big... don't tell me they couldn't find enough photos to fill TWO books. The small "style" books are really just catalogs for the publisher's larger books.
