This extensive series of watercolours needed to be the hero of the publication and the production and design needed to reflect the feeling one gets when visiting this Australian landmark. This project spanned over 4 months culminated in a hugely successful book launch and opening late October opened by John Spooner.
The manager of Readers Feast wrote to The La Gerches the following comment.
On only a handful of occasions over my 37 years in the trade have I instantly loved every aspect of a book. This happened today! Geoff and Bronwen La Gerche offered us their magnificent book, "Southern Beauty: interpreting the Prom." Geoff's watercolours are truly beautiful and Bronwen has provided the words to accompany them. We took delivery immediately of stock so I would urge you all, when next in the store, to ask to see a copy. One has already sold....to me!
