Book design for Tom Stuart-Smith: Drawn from the Land, the first major overview of landscape architect and designer Tom Stuart-Smith’s work, published by Thames & Hudson. The book features 24 of Stuart-Smith’s gardens from around the world, and is available in two formats – a standalone hardback, and a two-volume collector’s edition which includes an exclusive volume of drawings by Tom.
Two essays by the designer himself reveal his influences and methods, thoughts about gardens and gardening, and how he approaches his projects. Drawing is an important part of Stuart-Smith’s work, and each garden is illustrated with an overview drawing as well as commissioned photography. Descriptive texts place each project in context. An illustrated chronology of Stuart-Smith’s works to date completes this survey.
