Overview

One of the most frequent occasions for gift giving is a token of thanks for hospitality received. Flowers or a bottle of wine are the commonest tokens, but for those who wish variety this book is a splendid alternative. It was written and designed with this specific intention, and speaks of various aspects of hospitality—"the atmosphere, conversation, shared laughter, and so on. Welleran Poltarnees has the gift for finding the words and images for universal situations, and that gift has never been more fully present than in this volume. The illustrations for every page are by the French painter Henri Le Sidaner. His talent is to show homes that radiate warmth and beauty. People are never shown which gives the images a timeless applicability. We think this is the ideal hospitality gift, being both pertinent and visually attractive.

Meet the Author

WELLERAN POLTARNEES has a lifelong love of gardens. His first memory is falling out of his baby carriage and landing on a bed of odorous white flowers which not only kept him from injury, but made the experience a sensual delight. He collects books about, and pictures of, gardens — but there are few timeless things that he does not so honor. He uses a book called Great Gardens of the World as a guide whenever he travels, and, with the exception of the Boboli Gardens in Florence, which came highly recommended and which he found monotonous — the gardens have always refreshed him. His favorite time for gardens is night. His favorite garden music is Manuel De Falla's "Nights in the Gardens of Spain", and his favorite garden poem is "The Garden" by Andrew Marvell.
