What a privileged it was to have Robin Fransden attending the Vetplantfees and launching his book “Succulents of Southern Africa” at the festival.
The book is published by Honeyguide Publications and is the most extensive photographic publication of general succulent plants for Southern Africa yet produced.
Nothing else is available currently to the extent, lavish style and user-friendliness of this work. Our experts believe the book will become a sought after reference guide and benchmark against which any future publication of this nature will be measured.
Eagerly awaited, the book is the result of a 10 year journey of love. Every species is recorded by more than 2,500 beautifully illustrated full colour photographs. The illustrations are always on the same spread as their relevant text. This feature makes the book extremely user-friendly. The text includes a description of the plant and its distribution.
Festival goers agreed and all the copies available at the festival was sold out by day two. Interested parties can order the book directly from Honeyguide Publications. To do so, click here.
