Within an African Eden

CREATE DESIGN ™ advertising and design agency was fortunate to have been given the opportunity to be commissioned by Grant Leversha to develop unique illustrations for his award winning master piece Within An African Eden. The book has been awarded Gold at the Independent Publisher Book Awards for 2013 in New York against 5000 worldwide entries as the "Outstanding Book of the Year - Art & Craftsmanship". It has also won gold at the Benjamin Franklin Awards in New York City under the Large-format coffee table books category.

“Last week I got to see the best golf book I have ever seen. Well, maybe it was the best book I have ever seen. It was only a sample, produced by photographer Grant Leversha and called “Within an African Eden”. It’s being printed and put together by the best bookbinders in the world who are based in Canada and there will only be 26 of the Masters Collection and 950 of the Premier Collection available. These books come at a huge price but for those who are as passionate about both golf and books as I am, it is a must.”

The cover of the book has Raquel’s illustration of a giraffe on the 9th fairway at Leopard Creek debossed into fine calf skin. The King Protea book illustration can be found on the limitation certificate page. The illustration was done by our in-house illustrator Raquel de Castro Maia and was hot foiled and embossed onto Munken 250gsm art paper.
