Illustrated with hundreds of photos by award-winning photographer Clive Nichols, and drawing on thirty years of exploration by Louisa Jones, this book offers an inspiring vision of the Mediterranean, linking cultural diversity and natural balance as discovered in its gardens, landscape design, literature, art, and architecture.
Canadian by birth, Louisa Jones has lived in Southern France for nearly forty years. She is the author of many books on gardens and landscape, including The French Country Garden and Reinventing the Garden.
Clive Nichols was voted Garden Photographer of the Year by the Garden Writers Guild. He is based in England.
