We love where we live and are unapologetic about supporting local creative talent and business whenever we can. We are SO excited about sharing the success of MPGL - or Mornington Peninsula Gardens and Lifestyle who have evolved from magazine publishing to the inaugural coffee table book about our award winning region.
'LOCALLY SPUN BY AN IMPRESSIVE MIX OF WRITERS, PHOTOGRAPHERS AND ILLUSTRATORS, THIS ANNUAL COFFEE TABLE BOOK CAPTURES THE BEST OF THIS WORLD-CLASS AREA IN A STUNNING HARDCOVER THAT IS PART GUIDE, PART KEEPSAKE... '
Ever since The Mornington Peninsula was Australia's only inclusion in the National Geographic Best in the World List for 2015, it is apparent that we are not the only ones to really appreciate what this slither of land below Melbourne has to offer.
The MPGL Book features a really eclectic range of topics tapping into it's truly local perspective and getting under the surface of this region and what makes it tick.
MPGL trademark photography really stands out in this book - using local photographers to showcase the best of the region, from lifestyle, outdoor, food and wine, local personalities and businesses.
'LIKE OUR POPULATION, THE TONE OF THE BOOK IS LAID BACK, WITH PLENTY OF CHARM'.
As locals, it is fantastic to discover new things about the area we call home, and equally for tourists this will be a fantastic reference and souvenir of the region - really earning it's coveted place on the coffee table!
If you look really closely you may just see that Detail Collective is profiled (I know, shameless plug) but regardless of our little inclusion, the MPGL Book makes the perfect Christmas gift - available from all the usual outlets in Australia, or alternatively, from MPGL direct here.
