Description: These six exquisite, three-dimensional garden scenes will refresh the eye and delight the heart. Glowing with richly coloured blossoms, the lavish garden settings centre on a wisteria-covered cupola, a plashing, bird-decked fountain, an ivy-covered wall, or, in one spectacular case, a trellised arbor with a full-working swing.
Artfully crafted by notable paper engineer Keith Moseley and painted by award-winning artist Robert Nicholls, the imaginative garden creations accompany verses by such poets as Christina Rossetti, Percy Bysshe Shelley, and Coventry Patmore.
Together, images and words convey all the love and beauty that a real garden can express—and the blooms will never fade.
Glazed pictorial boards. The book is in immaculate condition inside and out. All pop-ups are in full-working order.
