Almost Home: The Public Landscapes of Gertrude Jekyll
Environmental Design Archives, Apr. 2013
Kristina F. Miller
The perennial borders and woodland gardens Gertrude Jekyll designed for the estates of monied clients continue to inspire designers, historians, and enthusiasts today, as do her writings on the seasonal qualities of gardens. While numerous biographers, garden historians, and critics have described and analyzed Jekyll’s private commissions, her public work has received little attention. Almost Home is the first book to address these projects by one of the world’s most recognized and celebrated English garden designers.
