This entertaining and lovely book--the first to focus solely on follies and other garden buildings in Ireland--re-creates in word and image the wonder of these picturesque and fanciful architectural oddities. "A work of sustained scholarship and relish for the subject."--Patricia Craig, Times Literary Supplement "A feast of ephemeral architectural embellishment."--House and Garden "[A] pioneering book...It is beautifully designed and the well researched text is accompanied by excellent measured drawings and wonderful photographs. The volume is a delight to peruse, a veritable encyclopedia of the extraordinary and the fantastic."--Roger Stalley, The Irish Times "A major achievement."--Deborah Singmaster, Architects' Journal
