9780810930926: Gardens in Time

Ambitious in scope and a wonder to examine, Gardens in Time captures two millennia of garden history between its covers. The follow-up to world-renowned photographer Alain Le Toquin’s successful The Most Beautiful Gardens in the World, Gardens in Time contains lush and glorious photographs of the nearly 130 gardens that Le Toquin explored across 20 countries—the most comprehensive garden photo documentary ever undertaken by a single photographer. From the Roman gardens at Hadrian’s villa to the modern work of landscape gardeners like Fernando Caruncho, the Wirtzes, and Robert Irwin, historical and contemporary gardens are showcased. All are complemented by Jacques Bosser’s informative text, which reveals the evolutions, transformations, influences, and trends that characterize these beautiful landscapes, putting into context their aesthetic appeal, both then and now.

About the Author:

Jacques Bosser is a writer and translator of more than 40 design and photography books. He lives in France.

From Booklist:

Great gardens are temporal in every way, requiring endless attention and care to survive. Although many ancient masterworks have not endured, 2000 years of garden history are preserved in this dazzling opus. Having sought out and selected an array of exemplary landscapes, innovative modernist spaces, and unstudied community plots, Bosser and world-renowned photographer Le Toquin offer an extraordinary overview. Casting a well-trained eye on structural elements and ornamental features, pristine settings and exalted plantings, Le Toquin creates images of stimulating clarity that deliver a beguiling accounting of diverse garden styles. Combined with Bosser's gracefully descriptive text, the result is a definitive and ravishing chronicle of gardens spanning past and present, East and West, the eccentric and the sublime. An index of notable gardens open to the public will pave the way to in-person experiences. Alice Joyce
