Reviews

A fabulous tribute to the major works of one of the most influential designers of the 20th century. Bookseller Synonymous with great architecture, Frank Lloyd Wright also created beautiful gardens. This is a record of them and is full of inspiration to carry you through the winter till your garden flourishes again. The book will allow you to wander through the awsome Taliesin or exquisite Fallingwater in your mind's eye, and demonstrates the principle that gardeners should complement nature, not engineer her. Waterstone's Books Quarterly Did Frank Lloyd Wright design gardens during his long career? This glorious books shows us that he most certianly did. Author Derek Fell has taken all the photographs, which really capture the way the designer's mind was working... One can see echoes of Wright's style in the work of various American landscape designers and his importance in this sphere has been underestimated. This book helps redress that balance. BBC Gardens Illustrated Fell's book is a substantial coffee table editon, lavishly illustrated and carefully crafted so as to give the reader an insight into Wright's work. Reckless Gardener Derek Fell shared his first thoughts about Frank Lloyd Wright's landscapes with Historic Gardens Review. Now here's the book - and a highly interesting one it is, as well as beautifully illustrated, as one would expect from this skilled writer-photographer. Historic Gardens Review A great book for lovers of the famous American architect. English Garden A delightful and instructive book on his houses and their designed landscapes. Irish Times A sumptuous photographic feaast with an enlightening text. Limited Edition, South Worcestershire & Cotswolds A great book for amateur gardeners or garden visitors. Art Book
