New edition published of Georgina Masson's Italian Gardens

ACC Publishing has released a revised edition of Georgina Masson's Italian Gardens.

Originally published in 1961 as a complementary study to Geoffrey Jellicoe’s architectural work, Italian Gardens of the Renaissance, the book is intended to present a layman’s point of view on the subject, providing first impressions and a comprehensive background to the gardens and their history.

Tracing a line through the history and topography of Italy, Masson picks out the finest examples of gardens dating from the Renaissance, Mannerist and Baroque periods.

The new layout contains many previously unpublished images and a new chapter showing plans and sections of some of the most famous gardens as well as Masson’s original text and photography.
