Almost Home - The Public Landscape Of Gertrude Jekyll
|Author||C.f.miller ; M.treib|
|Publisher||Architectura & Natura|
Gertrude Jekyll, the esteemed British horticulturist, garden designer and writer, is lauded by many as a premier influence in landscape design. Her concept of the English garden symbolises “Englishness” in many ways. Although numerous private commissions have been analysed by critics, ‘Almost Home’ is the first book to address her public works. These exist across a diverse range of projects, demonstrating how her refined concepts could be deployed in the areas of health, memorial and tribute. Included are previously unpublished drawings, plus discussions of collaborations with architects such as Edwin Lutyens, Herbert Baker and Charles Holden.
