Description

A new edition, completely redesigned and including new photographs, of the classic account of Russell Page’s garden designs. Perhaps the greatest garden designer of the twentieth century, Russell Page (1906–85) was trained as an artist, and brought an architectural sensibility and a keen eye for style to the many vast garden projects that he undertook. With the assistance and co-operation of Page’s clients, Schinz and van Zuylen have researched and photographed all of his best work, both early and late, and some now no longer extant. Through his private files and unpublished writing, the man and his work are brought into sharp focus, and over 250 photographs capture the special beauty of his creations in England, America and throughout continental Europe.
