Gardens of Eden brings together more than fifty of the world's most beautiful gardens. Spanning time and continents, this book visits the glorious paradise gardens of ancient Persia, the restrained gardens of Italy and the Buddhist-inspired landscapes of China and Japan. Gardens of Eden ushers you through a botanical wonderland. Illustrated by more than 500 photographs, this tour takes in such gardens as Les Jardins du Paradis in Cordes-sur-Ciel, France; Nooroo in Australia's Blue Mountains; Villa Lante in Tuscany, Italy-the greatest and most perfect example of High Renaissance art and gardening-and the ancient gardens of Kyoto, Japan. It also surveys gardens in which some of the world's greatest writers found inspiration, such as Vita Sackville-West's Sissinghurst in Kent, and where politicians found solace, such as George Washington's Mount Vernon Estate. A celebration of the ideals and aesthetics that govern the creation of gardens in many cultures, this lavishly illustrated book is not simply a stroll through the world's finest gardens; it is a romp through history and an armchair ride around the world.
