      A NEW FRAME OF MIND. We always wanted to do something truly different from either a traditional optometrist or retail frame store. We wanted to offer the quality eye care and precision vision correction of the former with the wide selection and affordability of the latter. Karoo Space Ebooks bring you stories from the dusty back roads, the quiet villages, the farmyards and firesides of South Africa’s heartland. The Ebooks are all written and photographed by the award-winning authors, Chris Marais & Julienne du Toit. Come with us – we know the way.
