Product description

Hardback with decorative slip case, 2003, Booth-Clibborn Editions.
As new condition.
This book is a celebration of the characters who have practised, enriched and furthered the tradition of gardening in every corner of Britain, both garden designers and explorers, practitioners and writers. Not only does it include portraits of the people themselves but also their self portraits, as expressed in the gardens they have produced, which encompass the whole spectrum from formality to wilderness and from allotment to country house. It is a sequence of images that reveals a history of gardens through the eyes of those who have shaped them and in addition, explores the art of gardening today, an activity deep at the cultural heart of the nation.Comprising specially commissioned photographs this volume evokes the best of British gardening and presents a snapshot of the British garden at a decisive moment in its history. Portraits of gardeners remind the reader of our national gardening heritage that ranges from the wild to the formal.
