British garden designer and architect Cecil Ross Pinsent (1884-1963) earned his fame for his elegant Tuscany landscape architecture, which re-visited Italian renaissance designs in imaginative new ways. Admired by contemporaries including Edith Wharton, Vita Sackville-West, and Harold Nicolson, Pinsent has slipped in recent years into relative obscurity among Americans. That neglect lifts with the arrival of this coffee table book tribute to his work in garden design. An Infinity of Graces contains an illuminating selection of photographs, drawings, sketches, and the architect's correspondence.
