Looking 4 cover photo Dutch PC book: dense & diverse veggie bed!?!
posted 7 years ago
After no less than 15 years, my book ‘Tuinen van Overvloed’, the first Dutch publication on permaculture, will be reprinted this Spring. And I am looking for the right kind of picture for the cover, which leaves the immediate impression of what the title means: Gardens of Plenty.
The original had a digital drawing on the cover, which I guess was still somewhat utopian, but this new look will be conveying something very real: a standing format photo of, say, a few square meters of a bursting veggie bed or kitchen garden, with nicely dense and diverse, mostly rezognizable edibles.
Can you help? Or would you know anyone who can?
Thanks ever so much. Of course, other than a few signed copies, eternal fame will be yours!
Uhm Irene, I would need to get it scanned, since I only have the printed book - the material is in the file saved from the original publisher. The books' pages are really just mostly text, in Dutch, to be sure... I am not sure what that would do for you I guess I could scan the content-page (also in Dutch) for you - let me know!
Basically, it has been pretty much the standard book in the Dutch speaking world (NL and Flanders), and it lays out the principles of sustainable design to considerable depth, highlights a variety of innovations and their fathers and mothers, talks about soil, growing, community, seed variety etc. It has plenty of practical 'do's' yet is not a down-to-earth manual for gardening or something; it has proved to be a source of inspiration primarily since its first publication, bec. it connects the dots and is a pleasure to read.
