9780711219649: Hidden Gardens of Spain

This book uncovers fascinating treasures from one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Writer and photographer Eduardo Mencos has been given access to hidden corners of famous gardens such as the Alhambra and to private gardens known only to a privileged few. His images and descriptions reveal a wealth of creativity and tranquility, from Galicia to Granada, Barcelona to the Balearics, Catalonia and the Canaries, Madrid and Mallorca. Some of the gardens he shows are historical; some the creation of their current owners; others are by eminent garden designers, such as Luis Gonzales-Camino and Arabella Lennox-Boyd.

About the Author:

Eduardo Mencos is one of Spain's leading photographers.

Review:

Mencos's photographs are outstandingly good ... warmly recommended to anyone interested in Spanish gardens. The Garden Mencos takes us on an epicure's tour of the best Spanish gardens, starting in the mossy greenness of a Galician palacio in the north and ending in the black volcanic soil of the Canaries. Times What makes Eduardo Mencos's selection exciting and different is his focus on the privately owned, many of them modern, a few adventurously ultra-modern. Country Life Take comfort against the winter chill by settling down with Hidden Gardens of Spain. Sunday Telegraph Draw some lessons from one of autumn's crop of glamorous garden books on how to bring a bit of the Mediterranean home. Independent on Sunday
