Description - Landscape and Garden Sketchbooks by Tim Richardson
Garden and landscape designers are adept at interpreting outdoor spaces and transforming them into creatively conceived environments. Their ideas rarely come spontaneously:?rather, the thoughtful designer considers a space from different perspectives or for several seasons, working out spacing, planting, materials and colour schemes in detailed preparatory sketchbooks.
For this book, Tim Richardson, Director of the acclaimed Chelsea Fringe gardening festival in London, has selected thirty-seven talented landscape designers who are notable for the immense energy and creativity of their preparatory work.
The best samples from the personal sketchbooks are presented here with concise profiles on their training, inspirations and process.
From clear perspective drawings to more abstract, experimental compositions, and quick freehand squiggles on napkins to measured topographical mapping, many of which are works of art in their own right, Landscape and Garden Design Sketchbooks is an insightful, practical guide that allows a peek into the world of leading landscape designers.
