   Beautiful book
It has beautiful gardens, and is particularly appealing because I know the owners of some of them.

   Why printed in China
I am just curious about why these garden books are all printed in China? I just thank the publisher for providing this info on the page of the publisher, as it is shown. I don 't want to buy a Chinese-printed book ''. There are naturally political and humanitarian reasons for doing so, but also the carbon footprint of shipping these objects across the oceans. Added to these reasons is the fact that these jobs should be kept closer to home. Generally speaking, I found that localized books are not the quality of older, elsewhere-printed books. The photos lack focus and seem blown above what the original photo merits. If I decide to purchase a hardback garden book, I want to find quality in printing and content. I am a book that I am pleased to have for years on my shelf and to look at it again and again. Kindle does not carry it where is concerned about gardening and design. I have justification for my thoughts. There is nowhere else to express them than on the door of the publisher.

   Stunning book of twenty private PNW gardens
The gardens cover a diverse range of types and sizes, from lush multi-acre gardens to small urban lots. Various gardening styles are represented, from the exotic to the whimsical. The majority of the gardens are in northern Washington in the Puget Sound region, with five coming from Portland. Each garden is discussed in a dozen pages that discuss the garden owner, the history of the garden and a description of plants and features. The book is richly illustrated with stunning photography. Written by Brian Coleman ( an editor at large with The Old House Journal ) and with photography by William Wright. A foreword by Art Wolfe, whose Japanese garden is presented in the book.
