Regular price R 499.00

This book is a culmination of over twenty years of photography and is a collection of stories of people, places and events surrounding the Drakensberg.

John Hone was kind of South Africa's Ansel Adams. He was the main photographer and MD of Art Publishers for several decades, but his real passion was the Drakensberg, which he spent decades documenting. To truly appreciate the scale of his work it has to be considered that he did all of this on film decades ago. 

The best part of this chronicle of the Drakensberg is not just the photos, but the stories, which will leave you burning with inspiration to get out into nature. 

This book is added to all orders over R10 000 as a gift, and it goes without saying that we strongly recommend it!
