Gordon Campbell: A Short History of Gardens
Gardens take many forms, and have a variety of functions. They can serve as spaces of peace and tranquilty, a way to cultivate wildlife, or as places to develop agricultural resources. Globally, gardens have inspired, comforted, and sustained people from all walks of life, and since the Garden of Eden many iconic gardens have inspired great artists, poets, musicians, and writers. In this short history, Gordon Campbell embraces gardens in all their splendour, from parks, and fruit and vegetable gardens to ornamental gardens, and takes the reader on a globe-trotting historical journey through iconic and cultural signposts of gardens from different regions and traditions. Ranging from the gardens of ancient Persia to modern day allotments, he concludes by looking to the future of the garden in the age of global warming, and the adaptive spirit of human innovation.

Alicia Hall: Seasonal Plant Dyes
“Fascinating and well-illustrated... Hall has in the main selected plants which do not require excessively arcane procedures to produce exquisite colors.” —AboutMyGenerationThis beautifully illustrated book takes you on a botanical journey through the year, showing you how to create colorful and environmentally friendly plant dyes. You'll learn sustainable methods of growing and harvesting plants; the tools and techniques required to extract dye; which fabrics and yarns to choose; and the simple method of using soy milk as a fixative, to ensure rich and long-lasting colors. The book includes easy-to-follow tutorials explaining how to make four stunning pieces using seasonal plant dyes: a linen cushion cover, embroidered picnic blanket, hot water bottle cozy, and quilt.“The new book Seasonal Plant Dyes by Alicia Hall walks us through the process featuring plants to use at their peak in spring, summer, autumn, and winter to create an array of gorgeous colors and textures only natural dyes can achieve.” —Empress of Dirt“Some amazing facts about plants... Nature fools us all in to thinking yellow flowers would produce various shades of yellow dyes and all leaves would give green dyes of different hues. This is not so! Who would have believed for instance that a dark purple Buddleia flower would produce a dye of buttercup yellow. 104 pages of fascinating information and I can't wait to try my first dye! A well written book that's a delightful and interesting read.” —For the Love of Books
