British Gardens : History, philosophy and design, Hardback Book

British Gardens : History, philosophy and design Hardback


Garden design began in West Asia and spread through Europe. This book tells how, in the British Isles, it flourished to an extraordinary degree.

Following the historical method in Tom Turner's books on Asian gardens (2010) and European gardens (2011), it uses almost 1000 colour photographs, plans and style diagrams to provide a word and image history of garden design.

Individual chapters cover the Celtic, Roman, Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, Neoclassical, Romantic, Arts and Crafts, Modern and Postmodern periods.

Additional information about the gardens in the book is available on the website, which the author edits
