Editorial Dec '22 / Jan '23
From mid-December to mid-January is shutdown time for most people, even if only over the Christmas-New Year week. And what's more fun than lying with a book in hand on the beach or dangling in the farm’s hammock?
The Cambridge University Dictionary defines a book as an object consisting of a number of pages of text or pictures fastened together along one edge and fixed inside two covers.
That’s official, but books are a lot more fascinating: They provide us with new perspectives and ideas – perhaps making us consider something we've never tried before. If you would like to learn to crochet or do macramé, there are so many books available featuring vintage skills – and what could be more fun than becoming skilled in something that grandma used to do so well?
The many benefits of reading books are known to most of us. Don't lag behind, pick up a book and learn from others – there's no need for you to make the same mistakes that many people made before you.So, pak gerus jou boeke hierdie vakansie in, en benut dit in oulike interieur idees agterna. Geniet die rustyd en ons sien saam met jou uit na 'n pragtige nuwe jaar - 2023.
Our theme: Texture with Books
The theme Texture with books opens a wonderland of thoughts – all the thoughts ever put to paper. A room resonating with centuries of thought is a rich room. Debating whether it would be fake or not to use unread books as elements of design, is a very personal issue. Perhaps it depends on how you define the word ‘texture’. What is texture to you: Something that you want to touch? Or is it the warp and weft of a life lived mindfully?Keep in mind:
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
Matthew 11:28-30 (NIV)Gerty Basson
