Forthright, erudite, and always entertaining, Guy Cooper and Gordon Taylor, garden designers extraordinaires, tour a dazzling range of British gardens, expertly holding forth on, among others, spectacular creations by Capability Brown and Humphrey Repton, a labyrinth created by land artist Jim Buchanan, elaborate Victorian parterres at Waddesdon Manor, and Charles Jencks’ Garden of Cosmic Speculation. Illustrated with 150 color photos, The Curious Gardeners is a hymn to passion, obsession, eccentricity, and a great heritage of garden design. Guy Cooper and Gordon Taylor have designed gardens throughout Europe, America, and Britain, including Elton John’s 36-acre Berkshire estate. They are frequent contributors to HOUSE & GARDEN and the authors of Paradise Transformed, Gardens of Obsession, The Gardens of Fernando Caruncho, and Gardens for the Future.
