California Gardens: Of the Arts & Crafts Period
Take a tour of historic California garden design via this classic book. Released in 1914 the book offered yesterday's reader ways to plan and beautify the city lot, suburban grounds, and country estate. For today's historic home owner, there are 50 garden plans and 103 illustrations of actual gardens from photographs taken by the author. Of special interest are photos of outdoor furniture, lighting, and trellises. This book is a wealth of imagery and ideas about Arts & Crafts era sensibilities, Japanese gardens, and Mission-influenced landscape design.
