DURBAN – A PARADISE AND ITS PEOPLE (article first published : 2007-08-19)

Published by the eThekwini Municipality, an exciting new book about Durban is being launched at the KZNSA Gallery on August 21. Durban – A Paradise and its People is a comprehensive full-colour coffee table book that deconstructs the city of Durban/eThekwini from a diversity of perspectives. Featuring 384 pages of sumptuous visuals and insightful content, the book is a true celebration of Durban, a city that, in the words of the book’s author, is akin to paradise – even if it is a paradise that is filled with challenges.

Writer and artist Peter Machen was commissioned by the eThekwini’s Communications Department to produce the book. Machen has been writing about the city of Durban/eThekwini in local and national publication for the last decade. With Durban – A Paradise and its People, Machen has put all that knowledge, experience and love for his home town into a single volume that showcases one of the planet’s most interesting cities.

Durban – A Paradise and its People will be in book stores and galleries from September 1, retailing at R185.
