Editorial Reviews

Period Homes
Sam Watters gives us condensed portfolios of the works of the best landscape-design practitioners of the early-20th century . . . admirable taste and erudition is used in the selection of the projects and ordering of the views and the overall beauty of the publication. With American Gardens 1890 . . . it is clear why the Arthur Ross Awards selected Acanthus Press as winner for excellence in publication in 2007.
