  • This title is an up-to-date edition of de Nicole de Vésian’s bestselling 2011 monograph, with a new postface describing de Vésian's influence on the art of gardening. In general, the publication acts as a tribute to de Vésian and her life. Her close friend, acclaimed garden historian Louisa Jones (The Garden Visitor’s Companion), shares her own thoughts on the work of this atypical creator, accompanied by accounts from her friends and pupils.Includes accounts from Christian Lacroix, the nursery owner Jean-Marie Rey, the landscape artists Arnaud Maurières, Éric Ossart and Marc Nucera, as well as the garden historians Roy Strong and John Brookes. As Louisa Jones writes, de Vésian "has a feeling for space like musicians have a feeling for music".
