Synopses & Reviews
The photographs catalog images of nature used in art and design, with detailed views of natural elements, plant portraits, and pictures of landscape installations, gardens, and scenic vistas. Horticultural pictures are captioned as to botanical and common names. Images are coded and cross-referenced in the index and on the CD-ROM, making the book a compact picture file for illustrators, landscape architects, designers, and graphic artists. With an illustrated glossary, resource sections, and interviews with professionals in landscape design and botanical illustration, this is a great book for students.
