4.0 out of 5 stars Garden and Art, 8 Dec 2010
This review is from: Garden Wisdom (Hardcover)
Gardening talent meets artistic talent and the result is a charming, very readable book. Leslie Geddes-Brown edits a collection of writings by fellow gardeners; the compilation is illustrated with the stylised flower prints typical of Angie Lewin. There is something here to guide the reader through every aspect of gardening from a short treatise on lettuces, written by John Gerard in 1613, to choosing garden tools by Clarissa Dickson-Wright and Johnny Scott, via a wide range of sibjects, personalities and opinions. Ideal to keep by your bed - read a section each night and then return to the beginning. The illustrations. reminiscent of a 50's style as is the book itself, delight and enhance, making this a perfect present for anyone interested in gardens.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beauty and Colour, 8 Dec 2010
A lovely book, full of colour, presenting Angie Lewin's unique style. As an inspiration to an aspiring artist, the initial pencil and wash studies and then the final product - print, woodblock, textile or pottery - are full of life and movement. I can't stop leafing through it. Something for those interested in nature and in art and painting.
