I have to admit that the cover of this book really caught my interest and was the primary reason for me to look into buying it (as i have a big interest in sand and gravel landscapes). But i have to say that this book was a let-down (for me at least). yes, it does have some nice examples, but the depth of examples is very poor, and you can't help wonder if having all of the photographs in black and white is a missed opportunity to actually capture the subtle beauty and differing tones of the sand, grass and gravel pictured?
I also found the text quite one-sided and, well boring to be honest! I am very aware that the writers did not want to fall into the usual mystic or spiritual bias of these gardens - but still feel the pictures and the text fall flat for me.
