This stunning gift book offers fruit and vegetables as detailed art, viewed through eighteenth-century eyes, allowing us to enjoy the sight of swan-necked gourds and horned lemons, smile at silkworms hovering over mulberries and delight at the quirkiness of ' strawberry spinach' . . . a delicious medley of garden produce for gardeners and art-lovers.
CAROLINE BALL is an editor, copywriter and occasional translator who has written on many subjects, but has a particular interest in horticulture, garden history and the plant-hunters, both men and women, who have made our gardens and countryside the rich and diverse habitats they are today. She is a keen gardener and author of Heritage Apples, and has contributed to other books, including a study of William Morris and a guide to historical sites.
