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 Through his private files and unpublished writing, the man and his work are brought into sharp focus, and over 250 photographs capture the special beauty of his creations in England, America and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.

Russell Page may belong to an earlier generation of designers, but his work and ideas remail fresh and relevant to gardeners and designers today. This book is a handsome reminder of his achievements and a valuable archive in its own right. ( Professional Gardener)
A beautifully illustrated book. ( Garden)
A welcome reissue. The gardens, many in continental Europe and the US, are/ were of powerful simplicity and sophisitication and are well served by the photography and text. ( Ham & High)
Since many of Page's gardens gardens have perished, the book is not a complete catalogue, nor is it a biography, but it does provide a detailed account of Page's life and work, presenting where possible, the best and most representative of the hundreds of gardens he created. The brief chronology, extensive index and comprehensive acknowledgements page would make this a useful tool for scholars, though it's the photographs themselves that prove the greatest tribute to this great designer.
