Overview

The Garden Book is a sumptuously illustrated survey of 500 garden designers worldwide, organized in alphabetical order. It presents an unrivaled range of gardens from the fountained oases of ancient Persia to the classical gardens of Europe and the contemporary sculptured landscapes of the U.S. Each designer is represented by his or her finest garden, with accessible commentary placing the maker and garden in stylistic and historical context. Sublime photographs represent each garden, ranging from famous and public spaces to destroyed, mythical, or private places that have rarely or never before been viewed. The book includes an informative cross-referencing system linking designers who work in similar styles, movements, or time periods. It contains an essential glossary and directory of gardens around the world that are open to the public. This compact mini edition of The Garden Book presents the whole package in an easily portable format.
