"...a unique personal journey of discovery into the history of gardens and the great movements that have influenced that history. Featuring over 900 beautiful color shots specially taken for the book, the authors take examples from extant gardens to illustrate the representative features of particular garden styles and movements. Moving from the Western European tradition of gardening to Eastern techniques seen in China and Japan, the book covers a fascinating range of styles and periods and brings us right up to date with developments in the 20th century which have stressed the importance of wild plant conservation. The illustrations and text give an intimate portrait of a huge range of gardens: from the extravagant flourishes of the Italian Baroque to the contemplative landscapes of the Japanese tradition."
