Johannes Meintjes' seminal work Complex Canvas - a South African Approach is now available electronically. 

From the foreword:

In recent years there has been an increasing number of books devoted to the geographical, historical, political and cultural aspects of South Africa and particularly of Cape Town.

This book attempts to reveal the Cape Province in a new and possibly novel way. It is neither a history nor a guide-book, neither a factual document nor a cultural survey. It attempts to convey something of the intrinsic wonder of the country, the moods, atmosphere and other qualities underlying the obvious. Being essentially a painter of mood, memory and the imagination, the drawings are mostly a mergence of several aspects, manipulated to intensify what was found most arresting and, in conjunction with the text, attempt to convey the very feel of the country.
