Dreamscapes : Inspiration and beauty in gardens near and far
Captured in stunning detail by a world-class photographer, Dreamscapes features 70 of the most spectacular gardens in the world, all photographed at the height of their beauty. The gardens featured range from the classic, like the beautiful Edwardian idyll of Bryan's Ground in Herefordshire, and Kenrokuen, one of Japan's most exquisite public gardens, to those at the forefront of planting design, like Hermannshof in Germany. Other iconic gardens include the stunning Welsh garden Dyffryn Fernant, Australia's Cloudehill, Martha Stewart's private estate in the US, Vita Sackville-West's home, Long Barn in Kent, the naturalistic French garden of Le Jardin Plume in Normandy, and Piet Oudolf's Hummelo in the Netherlands, among others. The genius of landscape designers such as Brandon Tyson, Paul Bangay and Fernando Martos is showcased to its very best effect by the haunting and evocative photographs of award-winning garden photographer, Claire Takacs. This magnificent volume will set you dreaming of some of the most beautiful gardens created on this earth.
