This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: For gardeners, Ireland's Roaring Water Bay, in West Cork, is a paradise: buoyed by the Gulf Stream and long hours of sunshine, its micro-climate permits unique plants--even palm trees--to grow and thrive there. And the past twenty years have seen the slow creation of a true masterpiece of "wild gardening" in the area: Glenkeen Garden, designed by Ulrike Crespo and Michael Satke. This book brings five photographers together to document the growth and development of the garden, each bringing to the project his own personal viewpoint. The result, a stunning and limited edition boxed set featuring several fold-outs, will enchant garden lovers with its images of luxuriant vegetation, innovative landscape architecture--including copses, avenues, and ponds--and inviting bridges and garden furniture, all depicted in a range of situations and styles, including the richly atmospheric late-summer daylight and the sparkling mysteries of nighttime.
