Description
Similar to Phaidon's other large A-to-Z surveys, this volume presents 500 garden and landscape designers who've created some of the most beautiful and iconic gardens of all time, from all around the world. Departing from the usual emphasis on genres and time periods, it encourages readers to contemplate unexpected connections between gardens, social history, and popular culture. Gardens of ancient Persia, the Moguls of India, and the palaces of Chinese Emperors sit side by side with contemporary gardens from the USA, Europe, and Australia. Formal geometric Modernist gardens of France contrast with the sweeping landscapes of the Romantic English country garden. Most are seen in a large, captioned color photograph, while others are in black and white, and long-vanished wonders like the mythical gardens of Babylon and Eden are illustrated by artists' impressions and illuminated manuscripts.
