The Overberg & Surrounds: An informed directory-style guide to where to stay, what to do, where to eat and shop in and around the towns & villages of the Cape Overberg & Surrounds. (See sample spread above.) This guide was extremely well received -- most people described it as "stunning". However, th economic recession took its toll and the Guide was closed down along with the magazine in 2010.
