Synopsis: MEDITERRANEAN LANDSCAPE DESIGN: VERNACULAR CONTEMPORARY

Illustrated with hundreds of exceptional photographs by award-winning photographer Clive Nichols, and drawing on nearly forty years of exploration by Louisa Jones, this book offers a fresh vision of the Mediterranean, past and future, linking cultural diversity and natural balance as discovered in its gardens, landscape design, literature, art and architecture. Divided into eleven sections built around themes such as stoneworks, earthworks, woodworks and seascapes, each of the featured works observes the logic of place as determined by climate, geology, flora and fauna, architecture and land use. The book includes well-known designers such as Heidi Gildemeister, Mary Keen, Arnaud Maurieres and Eric Ossart, Jacqueline Morabito, Paolo Pejrone and Nicole de Vesian, as well as land artists such as Andy Goldsworthy, Ian Hamilton Finlay and herman de vries. Glorious locations include the romantic landscaped ruins of Ninfa in Italy; hidden gardens in Venice; a lichen boulevard in the Ardeche mountains; trees turned into sculptures in Provence; hardscaping in southern Morocco; and the quarries at Bibemus that once inspired Paul Cezanne. It comes complete with a listing of useful contact details for practitioners and sites to visit.
