Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The wonder of topiary-fanciful renderings of animals, humans, and objects created from evergreens, perennial herbs, and other natural plant material-never fails to leave a lasting impression on all who experience it. This art form has been practiced for centuries, resulting in elegant green constructions of seemingly endless size, shape, and subject matter. Yet with continuing interest in gardening and crafts, this elegant form of self-expression is enjoying a fresh vogue among celebrities and other prominent people worldwide. Ultimate Topiaries is a unique survey of the splendid parterres, arches, pyramids, spheres, columns, knot gardens, and other formations that constitute this magnificent and enduring art.

Synopsis:

A photographic survey of the art and history of topiary design around the world and a catalogue of the full range of styles accompanied by a concise text.
