Fanciful topiary, Kate Greenaway children's books where little girls hold tea parties while wearing adorable smocked dresses, trellis hedges captured in wall paper and woven rugs and tapestries, long grass walkways, pollarded trees and stone garden stairways descending into sunken gardens - settings from `Room With A View' and `Maurice'- the colorful Arts and Crafts Movement was a breath of fresh air following the black tones and claustrophobia of the Victorian Age. Although it rains a good deal in England, you would never know it from the photographs in this lovely volume. Judith Tankard has also included a number of items from her own collection of prints and drawings of from the period known by the French as the Belle Epoch or beautiful era .

GARDENS OF THE ARTS AND CRAFTS MOVEMENT were and are a balm for a war-weary heart, developing as they did during the relatively peaceful period following the turbulent 19th century and the years before WWI. What happens if folks put their money into beauty and eschew the ugly? These gardens may seem ornate given the relative poverty of the working classes, but they were open to the public on certain feast days, and served as a place of refinement before public works became the only respite for the poor.

Many of the houses around which the Arts and Crafts gardens are designed are ancient, but contemporary designers like Gertrude Jekyll and William Robinson modernized the grounds. Robinson built his gardens at Gravetye Manor around an Elizabethan structure and Jekyll developed Mustead Wood, a mere fifteen acres surrounding a house designed by Edwin Lutyens. Robinson was interested in the "wild garden" and many of his flowers bloomed among the trees or flopped over wooden structures. A fan of bulbs he developed terraced sweeps of daffodils as well as bluebell woods, but for many folks the most beautiful part of Gravetye's grounds was the West garden where tea and China roses adorned pergolas, arbors and trellises. The book includes prints, designs and color photos of the grounds Robinson owned as well as those he designed for others. Jekyll's interest lay in the design of perennial beds.

Long after these artists were gone their influence was felt in England and other places. The book discusses the origins some of their ideas, as well as the influence of this movement on US gardens. This beautiful book will make a fine addition to your art book collection, and avid gardeners will find a few interesting ideas.
Good book for garden history buffs, well written, accessible and gives a very good overview of the important historical environment for arts and crafts gardens.
