Product Description

It will take hours to read through this exquisite art & garden book. Small pages provide the backdrop for tiny, hand-lettered, watercolor artwork that bursts with the joys that gardening provides. Delightful quotes are bordered by cottages and flowers; herb names & their meanings grow up from the ground like the plants themselves; instructions for planting is given alongside miniature illustrations; historic tools are labeled and drawn as if from a vintage book found in your grandmother's library. Each page features something new, something unique--you'll find a new treasure each time you re-read. The geometric arrangements of text hold just as much charm as the illustrations, and both together create a gift book unlike any other. Glossy pages, hardcover with dust jacket.

Publisher's Description

Sara Midda's richly illustrated In and Out of the Garden has delighted readers and critics alike. Diana Vreeland praised it as "delightful and delicious," and Laura Ashley called it "pure inspiration."

The most elegant and subtle of books to give and to have, it evokes the English gardens of Sara Midda's childhood, sowing the imagination with glorious images. Dozens and dozens of illustrations and tender reflections recall a hut in the wood, or a topiary maze, a summer day spent podding peas, or an herb patch that yields Biblical fragrances. Ruby-red radishes are the jewels of the underworld. Myriad colors fall upon warm green moss. Painted with Sara Midda's fine brush, it is a book of lasting enchantment.
