9780711226944: The Gardens of Russell Page
A new edition, completely redesigned and including new photographs, of the classic account of Russell Page’s garden designs. Perhaps the greatest garden designer of the twentieth century, Russell Page (1906 85) was trained as an artist, and brought an architectural sensibility and a keen eye for style to the many vast garden projects that he undertook. With the assistance and co-operation of Page’s clients, Schinz and van Zuylen have researched and photographed all of his best work, both early and late, and some now no longer extant. Through his private files and unpublished writing, the man and his work are brought into sharp focus, and over 250 photographs capture the special beauty of his creations in England, America and throughout continental Europe.

Review:
The garden projects of the distinguished British landscape designer Russell Page (1906-1985) are recalled in this revised edition, celebrating his prominent works. The authors and friends of Page, Marina Schinz and Gabrielle van Zuylen, researched and photographed examples of his efforts over his prolific career. With studies in art as background, Page examined famed architecture and garden design throughout his travels during his lifetime, applying the principles of the classical style to the gardens he designed for the wealthy in Europe and the Americas. Page became known for his excellence in the development of an over-all plan for a site, establishing his reputation internationally; the authors relate the challenges he faced in many site developments and their design solutions. Inspiring both professional and amateur gardeners, as well as designers, with their beauty, breath-taking photographs of his work trace his artistic skills as they developed through the years. (Winter 2008/2009 issue) -- The National Gardener

Russell Page was arguably the most famous garden designer of the 20th century. This new edition of a classic book sumptuously captures the feel of the gardens he designed around the world , while each chapter tells the story of one amazing creation after another. --Seattle Times
