In the course of a career that spanned most of the twentieth century, Russell Page (1906-1985) designed more gardens than anyone in history, among them those at the PepsiCo headquarters in Purchase, New York, the Frick Museum in New York City, and the Festival Gardens in Battersea Park in London. In this book, Marina Schinz's photography and Gabrielle van Zuylen's text explore the genius of Russell Page: his use of water and trees, scale and proportion, hedges and compartments, steps and parks. The 250 stunning photographs in this book and the revealing words of the man himself capture the essence of Russell Page's extraordinary work.
