A fascinating and beautiful study of the Australian modernist garden.
Part history, part guide, part source book—Cultivating Modernism will be an inspiration to all with an interest in gardens, books, and the recent past. For the garden maker, innovative design ideas open a door on new and creative ways to landscape the modern home.
For the bibliophile, Cultivating Modernism comes alive through a kaleidoscopic mix, marrying image and text from a dazzling array of long-forgotten books, magazines, and ephemera. For the general reader with an interest in the past, this will be a vital journey through a turbulent time. With 330 images in full colour, Cultivating Modernism is an armchair tour through our modern landscape—international in scope, Australian in focus.
