Crystal Palaces, American Garden Conservatories by Anne S. Cunningham(Introduction), Paul Bennett (Foreword) Crystal Palaces, American Garden Conservatories by Anne S. Cunningham (Introduction), Paul Bennett (Foreword)

A central part of a visit to any botanical garden is the conservatory, an enormous glass structure that houses a wide variety of exotic flora. America has an abundance of exceptional examples; many have been designated National Historic Landmarks. Crystal Palaces is the first book on garden conservatories in the United States from the Victorian-era structure in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco to the recently completed Quad City Conservatory in Rock Island, Illinois. Twenty-five conservatories are presented in detail through lavish color photos and evocative descriptions.

In essence, creating a "garden house" means pulling together the best and most comfortable aspects of indoor comforts and combining them with the natural delights of the garden, bringing the outdoors in to create a restorative, uplifting, and comfortable home. In this lushly illustrated idea book, Bonnie Trust Dahan offers a wealth of innovative ideas, designs, and delights: aromatic herbs near the bath, an indoor hammock, a stunning birch log with branches as a coat rack, an outdoor swing on an indoor porch, a rustic potting bench as a kitchen enhancement.

Greenhouses and Conservatories - Olivier de Vleeschouwer Greenhouses and Conservatories - Olivier de Vleeschouwer

Greenhouses and conservatories have a long and distinguished history. Starting in ancient China and the Roman Empire, the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries saw them housing rare and treasured spices and fruits from the colonies that were quite literally worth their weight in gold. Some of the most spectacular examples were commissioned by kings and queens, like the stunning organgeries at Versailles or Victoria's Crystal Palace that housed the first International Exhibition, symbolizing the glory and pride of an era. Olivier de Vleeschouwer's fascinating text examines the role of greenhouses and conservatories, in public and in private gardens, from their beginnings to the present day.
