The Gardens of Japan – first review

Our first review for The Gardens of Japan, and we really couldn’t ask for a better one. It’s in the current (March) issue of Gardens Illustrated and is by Charles Quest-Ritson, to whom all thanks. “Ravishingly beautiful and inspirational” – yes, we can live with that. Official publication date is the 25th March, though some bookshops already seem to have stock.

New book – Italy’s Private Gardens

After much debate, and pretty much at the last minute, everybody has agreed on a title for our next book (out in October). There are only so many ways you can combine the ideas of ‘Italy’ and ‘gardens’. Anyway, the layouts are done, the high res files have been sent off, and now we just have to wait and see.

New book – The Gardens of Japan

Quite unexpectedly, a FedEx van has just made its way into mid-Wales and down our snowy drive to deliver advance copies of our next book, The Gardens of Japan (Frances Lincoln Ltd), though it’s not due out until March 25th. Very pleased, and even more surprised that there were copies of the French co-edition as well, which we knew nothing about (or more likely had forgotten about)The Gardens of Japan
