From the imaginings of emigrant garden-makers of the late 18th-century to the concerns of 21st-century gardeners, this book charts its way across four centuries through a handsome and satisfying fusion of images and text.
The garden of ideas is embellished with an unparalleled array of images – paintings, drawings, prints, plans and photographs – each richly evocative of their time and most never previously published. Unearthed from around Australia, and many from overseas, these images carry the story of Australian garden style, criss-crossing social and cultural history across the wide extremes of our continent.
Richard Aitken brings fresh insights and presents our passion for garden-making with wit and flair.
