Multiple views of a famous garden
on June 28, 2014
Whether you've visited it or not (I have), this book is enriching because each chapter looks at La Foce from a different perspective. The founders' grand-daughter synthesizes the fascinating history of the garden, the estate, and the region, accompanied by illuminating period photographs. The photographer offers, and comments on, a hundred varied photos. The artist shares her informative and analytical notes along with her drawings. And an expert situates Cecil Pinsent's work in garden design history. This is a book for specialists that can be enjoyed by amateurs as well.
