  • GARDEN’S QUINTESSENCE by JAN JORIS LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTS
    Since its creation in 1977, Jan Joris Garden Architecture has become one of the main garden design firms in Western Europe, with trendsetting projects in a timeless and contemporary style. “Garden Stories” is an exceptional monograph of Jan Joris, garden and landscaping architecture, throughout the four seasons. A beautiful book, featuring twenty exceptional gardens in lush settings. Pagg. 256, cm 28×35, rilegato, Euro 96
  • THE ELEGANT GARDEN, AA. VV.
    Ambitious in scope and lavishly illustrated, this book surveys every period in garden design and landscape architecture, from classical antiquity and the medieval cloisters to the latest trends in modern design. Captured here are two millennia of garden history–the most comprehensive garden photo documentary ever undertaken by a single author. From the Roman gardens at Hadrian’s villa to the modern work of landscape architects, historical and contemporary gardens are showcased with special attention to the relationship between gardens and houses. The informative text reveals the evolutions, transformations, influences, and trends that characterize these beautiful landscapes, putting into context their aesthetic appeal. From the fountain gardens of Persia to the prairie-style gardens currently popular, from the Zen gardens of Buddhist temples to the Impressionist gardens in Giverny, the huge variety of gardens is a testament to our age-old desire to tame and refashion nature. This gorgeously photographed book will captivate travelers and garden admirers alike and inspire gardeners with ideas for design, horticulture, and use. Pagg. 432, cm 30×25, rilegato, Euro 58
  • ROYAL HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY ENCYCLOPEDIA OF CONIFERS. A COMPRENSIVE GUIDE TO CULTIVARS AND SPECIES AUDERS A. G. & SPICER D. P.
    A two-volume encyclopedia covering 8,000 cultivars and all 615 conifer species, more than any other illustrated book. As well as the extensively researched cultivar descriptions, this comprehensive guide includes descriptions of all accepted genera, species, subspecies and varieties. The cultivar accounts are particularly useful as size in ten years is given for the majority and the descriptions, origins and dates have been checked against the RHS International Cultivar Register. More than 500 species and 5,000 cultivars are depicted in high quality photographs, many taken in private collections in northern Europe, Japan and the USA. Pagg. 1500, cm 33×26, rilegato, Euro 223
  • PIETRO PORCINAI A PISTOIA E IN VALDINIEVOLE , BUCELLI C. & M. MASSI C.
    Il volume pensato in occasione del centenario della nascita di Pietro Porcinai (1910-2010), oltre a fornire una conoscenza delle trentasette opere nel territorio pistoiese, progettate tra gli anni Trenta e gli anni Ottanta del Novecento in vari ambiti, eminentemente paesaggistici, si propone di divulgare le acquisizioni storico-scientifiche in gran parte inedite, utili ai corretti interventi di manutenzione e restauro sui giardini ancora esistenti, e di stimolare il dibattito sull’odierna cultura del paesaggio. Pagg. 378, cm 17×24, brossura, Euro 39
  • DICTIONNAIRE AMOREUX DES JARDINS, BARATON A.
    Depuis des millénaires, les hommes n’ont de cesse de chercher le paradis perdu. À défaut de le trouver et sans attendre le jugement dernier, ils créent partout où cela est possible des jardins et des parcs, de véritables reconstitutions miniatures du monde qui nous entoure. Dans ces espaces le plus souvent clos de murs, la nature est idéalisée : elle n’est pas représentée telle qu’elle est vraiment mais telle que le jardinier aurait aimé qu’elle soit : le jardin est philosophie. C’est pour cela qu’il alimente généreusement les écrits des plus grands et il suffit pour s’en convaincre de lire ou relire Victor Hugo, Chateaubriand, Colette ou encore Federico García Lorca, l’un de ceux qui a le mieux exprimé son ressenti pour le jardin : c’est un tabernacle de passions, c’est une grandiose cathédrale pour de très beaux péchés. Dans les jardins se cachent la mansuétude, l’amour, et cette sorte de vague à l’âme que donne l’oisiveté. Si le jardin est philosophie, il est aussi un art de vivre. Le jardin est aussi une religion : toutes les civilisations vénèrent les arbres, toutes les populations communiquent avec les dieux en leur offrant des fleurs ou des fruits. Pagg. 592, cm 13×20, brossura, Euro 27
