    From the Inside Flap :



    (back cover)
    A remarkable guide to the world's most stunning gardens, 1001 Gardens You Must See Before You Die offers hours of enjoyable reading to all garden lovers. From famous gardens like Granada's Alhambra to the private hidden gems known only to the privileged few, this magnificently illustrated guide will inspire gardeners with new ideas and delight all garden lovers with lavish illustrations and fascinating descriptions.

    (front flap)
    The new second edition of 1001 Gardens You Must See Before You Die is a stunning guide to the most outstanding gardens in the world. You'll find descriptions of magnificent gardens flourishing in the Americas, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia.

    From the contemplative, tranquil spaces that characterize Japanese temple gardens to the scientific imagery and visual trickery that defines Charles Jencks' Garden of Cosmic Speculation, you'll discover gardens that are sometimes startling and unusual, while always interesting and beautiful. You'll discover contrasts between traditional European floral displays like those at Monet's garden at Giverny and the exuberant diversity of the lush tropical gardens of Bali. But all gardens speak of the intimate relationship that exists between human beings and the environment. Arabic and Persian gardens celebrate water, providing a haven from the harsh realities of desert life. Zen gardens replicate the perfection of the natural world in miniature--each single garden encompassing an entire world.

    Lavishly illustrated with stunning photos, 1001 Gardens You Must See Before You Die will inspire passionate gardeners with new ideas while offering fascinating reading to all who simply enjoy the visual pleasures of gardens.
