He is the author of Phaidon's The Garden Book, Vanguard Landscapes Gardens of Martha Schwartz, English Gardens of the 20th Century and the award-winning The New English Garden published by Frances Lincoln. He is also editor of Vista: the Culture and Politics of Gardens (Frances Lincoln). ANDREA JONES is one of the world's foremost garden photographers, having built up an international reputation for her photographs of landscape architecture, gardens and plants. The latter was the subject of Andrea's critically acclaimed solo book Plantworlds (2005). She has collaborated on numerous other book projects since Bold Plants and Grasses and Bamboos, both by Noel Kingsbury (1999). Andrea's collection of work forms the stock library Garden Exposures and appears in the international press including Gardens Illustrated, Garden Design (USA), House and Garden and The Daily Telegraph. Based in Scotland, Andrea is a Fellow of the RSA and exhibits her work around the world having had several successful solo exhibitions in both the UK and US. In 2008/9 she was voted Photographer of the Year by her peers in the UK's Garden Media Guild.


A very satisfying literary and visual experience providing a great temptation to gardeners. BBC Gardens Illustrated Twin interest in history and contemporary design gives Richardson the confidence to select (and leave out) gardens from the rich past and present of American garden design as he sees fit. It's an assuredness that inspires so much trust in his expertise that this reader, at least, wants to pack this book and travel across America to visit the places that Richardson has described. -- Andrea Wulf Literary Review Such a book is long overdue. Americans have been feasting on British imports a la Brookes, Hobhouse and Verey for long enough. By spotlighting US talents, Mr Richardson is 'returning the compliment', and, perhaps, paving the way for ideas to corss the Atlantic in the opposite direction. Country Life Author and photographer worked closely together on this book, and it shows in an unusually clear correspondance between Tim Richardson's incisive text and Andrea Jones's gloriously atmospheric photographs. Sunday Telegraph Richardson, one of the bigger brains in garden writing, teams up with virtuoso photographer Andrea Jones, and the result is so good it would make you cry. Irish Times A sumptuous coffee-table tome about how man has shaped landscape for his own aesthetic pleasure. Glasgow Herald A wonderful book, from a perceptive and entertaining author. House & Garden Great Gardens of America' surprises, confirms, enlightens and enhances our knowledge of American gardens. It shows what can be achieved when a strong concept is realised without compromise in production or content. Garden Design Journal A beautiful book, lovingly produced and lavishly illustrated with photographs. Professional Gardener A tour de force by the author. Garden
