We love the title's typography and finely aged vibe of this small coffee table book. It is a truly overlooked art; the rock garden. Great for any avid gardener in city or country this book includes chapters on garden delights such as Primulas, Pansies, Anemones and Campanulas to name just a few. Not to mention lessons astute garden tutorials on soil preparation and landscape architecture. There is a beautiful cursive inscription "To Mrs. Bunis Bunu with love from Nana" on the first page.
