|Authors information: |
This book presents gardens that, according to the author, appeal to an expressive perception of the spirit that conceived and still inhabits each of them. Its purpose is to transmit their styles, personalities and beauty. There is no privilege as regards size, location or design, but rather the capacity to convey vitality and be in harmony with the environment.
The photographs bring back reminiscences of those intimate spaces connecting us with nature and take us to ever-changing landscapes. An introduction by landscaper Carlos J. Thays clarifies the differences between parks and gardens.
