Photographed by Roger Phillips with text by Nicky Foy, this wide-ranging pictorial selection of garden features from around the world; deals not so much with the overall designs, more with the individual components (structural details, water features, mazes, garden furniture etc.) placing the whole in a temporal context from Roman and Islamic through Italian Renaissance to the Natural and Native Plant gardens of recent years. Chinese and Japanese gardens are treated separately. Although some subjects such as sculpture are skated over somewhat, for a quickfire introduction to diagnostic features of garden styles this book can hardly be beaten. 320 pp., copiously illustrated.
