Extraordinary Gardens of the World by Monty Don
Monty Don spent six months visiting gardens all over the world for his groundbreaking and highly successful television series AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 GARDENS. During filming, he and the camera crew also spent time taking still photographs to record the extraordinary variety of gardens they visited. Many thousands of images resulted. This large-format, lavishly illustrated book presents the best of this unique archive. Featuring entirely new images, it captures the spirit of the gardens and celebrates the cultures and contexts in which they flourish. The sheer size and number of images allows an unforgettable progression of grand vistas and intimate details from all over the world.
