Format: Hardcover
Ferruccio Vitale: Landscape Architect of the Country Place Era, covers a critically important, previously unpublished period in the history of landscape architecture. It defines and illustrates, for the first time to my knowledge, the European design philosophy that formed the roots and shaped the art of contemporary landscape architectural design.
The book describes through words and beautiful historic photographs, significant gardens, public parks and landscapes. It presents the professional developments of landscape architecture at the beginning of this century and the amazing accomplishments of Vitale in the advancement of landscape architecture as a profession.
This book should appeal to landscape architects, architects and designers throughout the nation.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is beautiful. The art director should be chastized, though, for overlaying the cover text on a portion of a photo that should have shown a majestic tree, balancing the majestic tree on the left.

I did not find the writing terribly compelling, but I am not an academic.

Buy it for the pictures and you won't be disappointed.
