Was so excited for this book, until I opened it and viewed the design!
Part of it is my own fault, buying the book online and not checking out a look inside through Google or Amazon, but after hearing about the book through the publisher's newsletter I thought for sure it would be both informative AND beautiful because of Timber Press's reputation.
The trim size first threw me off, what a handful to hold! And once I opened the book I was horrified. It was as if the designer was bored. Huge fonts with gaps of white space for no reason. Pictures seemed to be dropped onto pages with no thought to flow. The author is clearly passionate about container gardening and very knowledgeable and I feel like she was cheated out of a book people would recommend to others.
With so many gardening books to choose from I feel like Timber Press got lazy.
I would no recommend this book to anyone. Visit the author's blog instead and save yourself the money.
