Help publish 'Cultures, Cures and Curiosities'

 

The Botanical Society is delighted to announce that we are raising funds to make possible publication of an exciting new plant book. 'Cultures, Cures and Curiosities: Plant-Lore and Legend of the Eastern Cape, South Africa' is written by Tony Dold and illustrated by Susan Abraham.

 

Based on 20 years of empirical research, it features 40 Eastern Cape plants of ethnobotanical importance, whether used as charms, for food or as medicines. Modern-day use of many of these plants can be traced back to their traditional use by the Khoe, San or Xhosa.

 

Each plant species account is illustrated with a full-colour watercolour painting by botanical artist Susan Abraham. The introductory chapter gives a historical overview of the region's botanical exploration, drawing on the earliest written records.

 

Pre-publication reviews

 

'Cultures, Cures and Curiosities' unpacks a treasure-trove of plants, poisons, stories and histories, scientific information and startling factoids – from rhinos on steroids to toxic chewing-gum to natural resource management. It is packed with beautiful photographs and exquisite botanical paintings as well as historical maps and travellers' sketches. A delightful, nuggety book. – Hazel Crampton, author and artist

 

Susan Abraham's botanical illustrations are beautiful, skilfully painted and accurately observed, showing the key scientific diagnostic elements. Together with the book's photographs, they form a wonderful record and a fascinating glimpse into the useful flora of the Eastern Cape. – Vicki Thomas, botanical artist and teacher

 

 

Join our fundraising! 

 

The publication of this book will be made possible only with the support of donors, sponsors and subscribers like you:

 

  • Become a donor by contributing a minimum of R20 000 towards the publication costs. Donors will receive a numbered copy of the book with an inscribed page, signed by the author and illustrator and presented in a slipcase.
