Editorial Reviews

Los Angeles Times
...a photographic revelation.
Garden
This book is a beautiful work of art, which any garden enthusiast will want to own.
Booknews
Bartholomew has made 100 exquisite b&w photos of the Royal Botanic Gardens. These pictures demonstrate (if not explain) the superiority of b&w over color for artistic expression in photography. Includes a couple of good maps of the grounds. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
