Description
One of the greatest garden designers of the 20th century, Russell Page (1906–85) was trained as an artist, and brought an architectural sensibility and a keen eye for style to the vast garden projects that he undertook. Originally published in 1991, when it was voted the Best Garden Book of the Year by the Garden Writers of America Association, Gabrielle van Zuylen and Marina Schinz's superb visual profile of Page is presented here in a completely redesigned edition, including new photographs—a number of which fill two large pages.

"Russell Page may belong to an earlier generation of designers, but his work and ideas remain fresh and relevant to gardeners and designers today. This book is a handsome reminder of his achievements and a valuable archive in its own right."—Professional Gardener

"Since many of Page's gardens have perished, the book is not a complete catalogue, nor is it a biography, but it does provide a detailed account of Page's life and work, presenting where possible, the best and most representative of the hundreds of gardens he created. The brief chronology, extensive index and comprehensive acknowledgements page would make this a useful tool for scholars, though it's the photographs themselves that prove the greatest tribute to this great designer."—Art Book
