AMoreThe gardens of the great Edwardian landscape designer are captured in all their glory in 200 color and duotone images from the archives of Country Life. Harold Peto (1854–1933) was one of the most celebrated landscape designers of the Edwardian era. A leading exponent of the ultra-romantic Italianate style so fashionable in the first two decades of the 20th century, he was also influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement. Much admired by the likes of Gertrude Jekyll and Edwin Lutyens, he was recognized as one of the most successful garden designers of his generation and enjoyed a formidable reputation both in England and the south of France. The commentary is brought to life by 200 ravishing photos depicting many of Petos gardens in their heyday.
