BOOKS AS SOLE PHOTOGRAPHER:
“Just reading the book lowers the blood pressure, stirs the senses, makes the trowel hand twitch.”
Val Easton, noted garden writer, and journalist David Laskin team up with prize-winning garden photographer Allan Mandell to portray the gardens of ten Northwest artists.
“The glorious photography, which makes it seem as if the sun always shines in the Northwest, highlights a common urge for brightness and helps the reader visualize the artists’ individualistic approach to gardening.”
“It should be noted that this book speaks best to experienced gardeners, for substantial horticultural knowledge is required, including a full grasp of each plant’s character, culture, seasonal phases and mature mass. With considerable aid from Mandell’s luminous photographs, Lovejoy’s articulation heralds an important evolution in American garden design.”
“Allan Mandell’s breathtaking photographs show flowers in full color at every stage from the garden to finished arrangement. Visually stunning and replete with information both practical and inspirational, Garden to Vase will help you grow both as a gardener and as an artist of the garden’s bounty.” (from inside flap)
