The photographs in this delightful little book are as stunningly beautiful as the private garden in which they were taken. The garden, situated in Montecito, California, is a paradise of the sort that many can only dream about, a perhaps unattainable botanical utopia. Through Kenna's eyes, we get to see the parts that particularly caught his attention and, in this way, a seamless landscape becomes the whole of many surprising details. It is a charming and intimate glimpse, presented as 14 duotone plates and one original sepia-toned silver gelatin print. This is Michael Kenna's second title in Nazraeli Press's popular One Picture Book series.
