In the Garden, by award-winning photographer Stacy Bass with essays by Suzanne Gannon, celebrates the natural splendor and abundant creativity of the American gardens of the new millennium. In astonishing fine art images and vibrant prose, each of its 18 chapters tells the story of a how an individual brought his or her vision of beauty to life, inspired by the lay of the land, a single blossom, or a garden once glimpsed in a far away place.

In the Garden is alive with 224 pages of color?lush spreads and intimate detail shots--that showcase Bass’s intuitive knack for composition and her sharp eye behind the lens. Whether devoted to a manicured series of structured parterres or a rambling meadow of wild grasses, each chapter features a crisp and lively narrative that both entertains and informs the reader, intentionally straddling the divide between aspiring gardeners and avid horticulturalists. By evoking the personality behind the garden and illustrating the results of his or her work with foliage and flowers, it serves as an aesthetic commentary on how we shape the world around us.

This luxurious book which features some of the Northeast’s most noteworthy and beautiful gardens captured at dawn, makes a generous and compelling gift, and serves equally well as a decorative accessory or a rich conversation piece.
