Description

Spanning time and continents, this fully illustrated colour handbook tours the worlds most beautiful gardens from ancient Persia and the Buddhist-inspired landscapes of China to Les Jardins du Paradis in France and the Nooroo Gardens in Australia. Features descriptions and histories as well as suggestions on how and when to visit them. A celebration of the ideals and aesthetics that govern the creation of gardens in many cultures, this book is organised by theme rather than place, including Writers' Gardens where some of the world's greatest writers found inspiration and Politician's Gardens where world leaders have found solace.
