Walks to the Paradise Garden: A Lowdown Southern Odyssey
A classic grand tour of Southern folk art, from Howard Finster to Lonnie HolleyWalks to the Paradise Garden is the last unpublished manuscript of the late American poet, photographer, publisher, Black Mountain alumnus and bon viveur Jonathan Williams (1929–2008). This 352-page book chronicles Williams' road trips across the Southern United States with photographers Guy Mendes and Roger Manley in search of the most authentic and outlandish artists the South had to offer. Williams describes the project thus: "The people and places in Walks to the Paradise Garden exist along the blue highways of America.… We have traveled many thousands of miles, together and separately, to document what tickled us, what moved us, and what (sometimes) appalled us." The majority of these road trips took place in the 1980s, a pivotal decade in the development of Southern "yard shows," and many of the artists are now featured in major institutions. This book, however, chronicles them at the outset of their careers and provides essential context for their inclusion in the art historical canon. Taking its name from the famous artwork by Howard Finster, Walks to the Paradise Garden brings to light rare images and stories of Southern artists and creators who existed in near anonymity during the last ha...

Paradise Planned: The Garden Suburb and the Modern City
Paradise Planned is the definitive history of the development of the garden suburb, a phenomenon that originated in England in the late eighteenth century, was quickly adopted in the United State and northern Europe, and gradually proliferated throughout the world. These bucolic settings offered an ideal lifestyle typically outside the city but accessible by streetcar, train, and automobile. Today, the principles of the garden city movement are once again in play, as retrofitting the suburbs has become a central issue in planning. Strategies are emerging that reflect the goals of garden suburbs in creating metropolitan communities that embrace both the intensity of the city and the tranquility of nature. Paradise Planned is the comprehensive, encyclopedic record of this movement, a vital contribution to architectural and planning history and an essential recourse for guiding the repair of the American townscape.

We are familiar with Monty Don's garden at Longmeadow and enjoy its different rooms every week on Gardeners' world. These have all been mapped out and lovingly created by him. They have been influenced largely by the culture set out by British gardeners using native plants and shrubs that thrive in this soil and climate. Now Monty is going to set off on a journey to find out how a very different culture and climate has influenced garden design in its own way. In this series Monty looks at what marks out a garden in the Islamic world and the influence this has had on gardens much closer to home. His journey starts in the historical and stunning Islamic gardens of Andalucía before heading east to the beating heart of Islam: Turkey, Iran and India. Monty discovers and learns about the four areas of Islamic civilisation; Andalucían, Moghul, Persian and Ottoman, by visiting gardens that represent and symbolise each. Across his journey he discovers the huge importance of gardens in Islamic culture. Includes subtitles for the Hard of Hearing
