From little beginnings: the extraordinary story of a bloodstained, diminutive crumb of a servant girl who went on to shape the world. Exuberant and utterly distinctive, LITTLE recalls a momentous stretch of French history through the eyes of Marie Groscholtz, who survives the harshest of beginnings and most violent of revolutions to craft her place in history. LITTLE is a stunning artefact of a novel; a wonderfully grisly reimagining of the life and times of Madame Tussaud. Carey weaves a tale of heartfelt sympathy and jet-black humour; eccentric oddity and utter enchantment. Dickensian in style with an unforgettable cast of characters, LITTLE is a masterpiece for modern times.
In Australian Gardenscapes, Claire Takacs showcases the varied gardens found in the Australian landscape, from lush green oases to semi-arid settings. Claire profiles Australian gardens, gardeners and garden designers who are drawing on the international movement towards a more naturalistic approach to planting design. Similar to the New Perennial movement and Prairie-style, these gardens take into consideration how plants grow in the wild and have created highly textural, visually pleasing gardens that appeal not only to our love of beauty, but that sit gently in their surrounding landscapes, giving a strong sense of place.
Across 15 chapters and 22 gardens, Claire's stunning photography is accompanied by essays written by the garden owners or designers. The chapters detail the journey to establishing the gardens, their motivation, and the struggles and rewards the gardens bring day in, day out. Beautifully presented, Australian Gardenscapes is a stunning journey through the diversity of gardens in Australia.
