Gardens of Obsession: Eccentric and Extravagant Visions
by Gordon Taylor & Guy Cooper
Visionary, magical, beautiful, mysterious, witty and bizarre are just some of the ways to describe these gardens conceived by gardeners driven by their dreams and fantasies. It is so difficult to find books on amazing gardens and this one is choc-a-block full of the most insane photos. Including: the optical lawn art of Chris Parsons; the unusual topiary of French artists the Lalannes; and a chapter devoted to the unforgettable surrealist garden of Edward James in Mexico. Truly incredible!
