Gardens of Illusion Summary

Gardens of Illusion: Places of Wit and Enchantment by Sara Maitland

From extravagant Tudor topiary, to Renaissance fountains that squirted unsuspecting visitors, there is a long history of wit and humour in the garden. This book turns its back on the trend for natural gardens and suggests ways in which this tradition of wit and illusion can be applied to modern gardens. When should you use mirrors in the garden? What is the best way to create sound effects? How do you devise a mural or any number of visual tricks? Containing pictures of contemporary gardens and including a glossary of practical advice, this book shows how to create gardens to amuse and delight both adults and children alike.

Table of Contents

The wit tradition; carving the landscape; laughter like a fountain; reflecting on reflection; sacred groves and magic forests; passions of the mind.
